The Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education (NIE) program is a cooperative effort between schools and the Times to promote the use of newspapers in print and electronic form as educational resources. Since the mid-1970s, NIE has provided schools with class sets of informational text in the form of the daily newspaper and our award winning original curriculum, at no cost to teachers or schools. In the Tampa Bay area each year, more than 5 million newspapers and electronic licenses are provided to teachers and students free of charge thanks to our generous individual, corporate and foundation sponsors.
The most recent NIE supplement features of Answers on Tap from Tampa Bay Water. It includes 16 pages jam packed with information on the sources of our drinking water, how water is treated, source water protection and conservation. It also includes several career options to explore in the world of water designed to inspire middle school students.
