Yellow Hat, The

The Yellow Hat shows how students can lead the way in environmental change. The fast-paced 15-minute program follows a middle-school environmental club through an investigation of local water quality issues. The students gather and organize information, formulate questions, and interview some of the nation’s top environmental scientists. They also meet other professionals dealing with environmental issues: state environmental managers, a town manager, a veterinarian, and an environmental activist. Their investigation culminates in a presentation before their town council and a storm drain-stenciling project to alert people about keeping streams clean.
