This course offers students an opportunity to go deeper into science topics related to the environment. Ecology, resource conservation, interdependence of organisms, recycling, alternative energy, and the importance of biodiversity are emphasized with hands on activities. Global challenges like population growth, climate change, and extinction are among the timely topics discussed.
Students will look for solutions to problems as they find out that “I can make a difference!” The study of marine habitats, conservation and adaptations is a favorite in the class. Students also enjoy planting, maintaining and experimenting in our “outdoor classroom” which includes a greenhouse, composting and hydroponics. Digital labs, speakers, games, and field trips add to the variety of learning experiences offered in this class.
