This laboratory course is intended to prepare the student to earn college credit by passing the AP test in environmental science. It will provide students with knowledge of the principles that underlie the interrelationships of the natural world and methods to identify and analyze natural problems and human-caused problems in the environment along with examination of possible solutions to these problems. Environmental Science uses much of the knowledge students gained in Biology, Chemistry, and Math III classes to investigate relationships and problems in the environment. Much of the lab work is done outdoors. Due to limited classroom time, Saturday and after school labs may be required. Students will be responsible to complete a summer assignment for this course.
