Mike Browne was featured in a special education section of the paper on young people making a difference. “Five Do-Gooders” interviewed teens from all over the country who found a problem and made a real difference in trying to solve it.
The article highlights the origins and success of Browne’s project and talks about his Aspergers. Mike is happy that the “Get the Lead Out of Fishing” message is reaching an entirely new audience of educators and parents. He hope that educators will be inspired to teach their classes about the hidden dangers of lead and that parents will teach their children and buy lead-free fishing weights.
Update: Browne has created a lesson plan for use in the classroom to teach students about the hidden dangers of lead. View and download the lesson plan.
