Certified Environmental Sciences Classroom Kits

Local high school environmental science teachers or advisors for environmental consciences student clubs are invited to teach up to four units (ecology, air, water and climate) using reserved classroom kits. The kits teach students environmental topics, give them the opportunity to experiment and practice gathering and reporting collected data. Each unit takes two weeks to complete.

Each completed unit qualifies the class for an award. Bronze is awarded to those who complete one unit, silver is for two units, gold for three and platinum is for the completion of all four units. A class party will be offered by the college that will include a level-specific classroom award, individual awards and of course, food.


Students investigate how living things interact with the environment along the Wasatch Front and how the living things tell us hidden details about the health of the environment, changing factors and how it could affect us.
