Project Title & Description
Field It: Bringing Environmental Science from the Classroom to the Field
The "Field It" project will augment existing environmental curriculum for 100 - 120 11th and 12th grade students by exposing them to a full range of cross cutting and media specific environmental science and research topics. The students will experience environmental issues first hand through workshops, field trips, guest speaker programs, and will also be afforded a scholarship opportunity. The program is designed to ignite the imagination of students to encourage critical thinking, problem solving and teamwork. "Field It" will instill an awareness, passion and interest in environmental issues, and will encourage students to pursue environmental studies and careers through these real life experiences.
