  Project Overview

Due to the lack of information located in the school based on today's ever changing environment, it will be a tremendous help if students could search the Web to obtain information relating to their environment related courses. Also, it will give them a closer connection to what is actually happening out in the world.
  • Students will learn the importance of the environment and why it is important to conserve and help repair the damages.
  • Students will gain better knowledge about environmental issues that are occurring all over the world.
  • Students will be able to relate environmental issues, from the perspective of other people around the world to their own personal views.
  • Students will be able to recognize the strong views, concerning the environment, of others outside the local community.
