This program will encourage students to make a connection with their environment and foster engagement with hands-on, community based learning. High school students will be responsible for raising trout from eggs to young adults, before releasing them into Seely’s Pond within the Watchung Reservation.
This building set of various anatomical skeletons will allow students at the high school to use hands-on experience to identify patterns, cause and effect relations, body systems, gather data, draw conclusions, and construct explanations regarding the evolution and variations within species.
These materials give high school students tools for hands-on learning in the field of Ecology and Environmental Science. Students will work on real-world climate problems by using both science and engineering practices, and also have the opportunity to affect the environment by implementing the new NJ Climate Change standards.
