What will this course cover?
In Environmental Science, students will examine the impact humans have had on the climate, the oceans, and forests using critical thinking. This course will revolve around the idea of cause and effect as it pertains to prevalent environmental issues, and students will be asked both to learn about the effects humanity has had upon the environment and to utilize their creativity to analyze current solutions and brainstorm their own ideas. This course will combine comprehensive lessons with hands-on, project-based learning to allow students to both learn about a wide range of topics and gain personal experience working with some. In addition to projects that accompany units of the course, students will create and present a final project to cap off their learning during this course.
