TRC Partners With "E" Inc. to Support Environmental Science Education in Boston

Sponsors STEM Curriculum Initiative at Dorchester's Mather Elementary School

LOWELL, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2015) - TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR) is proud to announce its partnership with "e" inc., a Boston-based environmental science education nonprofit that promotes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and sustainability for K-8 students. TRC is supporting "e" inc.'s Kids Green Their School initiative at Mather Elementary School in Dorchester. The innovative science education program teaches students about conservation through a Zero Waste curriculum. TRC will also lead the voluntary Science Day at Mather Elementary School on June 17, 2015.

"TRC is committed to supporting the communities where we live and work," said Chris Vincze, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Organizations like "e" inc. and the initiatives they spearhead help inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, and we are proud to give our resources to support them."

TRC has created the program "So You Want to be an Environmental Scientist?" for the Mather Science Day. As part of the program, TRC employees will provide students with hands-on environmental science and sustainability activities that will expose them to STEM careers and environmental conservation.

"The "e" inc. partnership with TRC has been delightful," said Dr. Ricky S. Stern, Executive Director. "We are teaching children in all grades about the science of energy and how they can conserve it at their school. With those ideas, TRC is helping the students really experience the science and learn what it's like to make positive changes for our planet. The match between what TRC does day to day and the work of "e" inc. is perfect."

TRC's sponsorship of the Mather Kids Green Their School program includes a year-long commitment to science education with student-led action and conservation activities that will help the school become greener. The ongoing Mather project will help the school reduce waste. The initiative has introduced a double-sided paper program in every classroom that will reduce paper use by up to 30%; composting of the school's kitchen waste to be utilized for the school garden; and a food re-use program that sets aside whole foods not used at lunch for anyone who wants food after school or to take home. The curriculum will be an ongoing program provided to the school through the 2015-2016 school year starting in August.
