People are increasingly aware that the
environment is at risk. In order to preserve our environment, people must have
an awareness of and commitment to their surroundings, as well as engage in
problem-solving practices that aid in the sustainability of Earth. In order to
fulfill these goals, an understanding of Earth’s needs and the risks to
the continued healthy life of the planet are essential.
In the nine
scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies in
environmental science are explored and explained. Students will be led on a
journey to understand the interrelationships in the natural world, identify and
analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, evaluate the
relative risks associated with these problems, and examine alternative solutions
for resolving or preventing them.
