Welcome to the new Environmental Science Class web page! This web page has been put together to keep you up-to-date on what is going on in the 2010/2011 Environmental Science Class.
In general, this course is designed to introduce you to environmental science and environmental conservation. The goal is to provide you with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world; to identify and analyze environmental problems (both natural and man-made); to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems; and to examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them.
This class is interdisciplinary - it embraces a wide variety of topics from different areas of study including geology, biology, chemistry, geography, and mathematics. It also emphasizes environmental sustainability and sustainable development - the ability meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
With sustainability in mind, the Environmental Science Class has set the following objectives and has initiated two projects to achieve those objectives.
|Garden of St. Fiacre Project|
|St. Ambrose Sustainability Project|
