Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary class.

This is a web based class with a lab component. Students will be required to read, take notes, and apply concepts in weekly assessments.
In addition, each student will design and conduct a long term experiment, with guidance from the teacher that will be peer reviewed and used as a portion of the final grade.
