According to Distel, SYEP is designed to introduce younger students to environmental topics with a focus on science and experimentation. Schreiner students will teach the courses with help from Distel, on the SU campus.

The cost for participants will be $40, which covers all the sessions and is due by Thursday, Feb. 21.
