Project SEEDS (Science and Ecology Education Development Series) offers environmental science programming to children living in urban South Bend. Through interaction with the natural world children can form an appreciation for the environment as well as interest in the natural sciences. The SEEDS Neighborhood Ecology program aims to link youth in underprivileged neighborhoods to the environment in their own backyards. The program culminates in visits to Indiana University, South Bend, linking the summer activities to career possibilities in ecology.
The Riverbend Community Math Center assisted Project Seeds during the summer of 2010 by providing hands-on activities involving math, ecology, and biology.
