Course Description

Are you interested in learning how you can study the health of different habitats in our community?  Then EnviroBio Avengers is for you! Environmental Biology involves the investigation to the impacts of human actions, pollutants and other conditions on wild communities.  Although biology is the focus, studies often involve chemistry and math to help in studying an ecosystem.  This week long workshop will involve a combination of outdoor data collection and learning and computer-based data analysis.  We will take a hands-on approach to environmental biology by exploring onsite habitats throughout the week and conducting several studies in the field.  During the computer component, participants will learn how to utilize the internet and other computer sources to look at different datasets as well as learn different analysis techniques for visualizing data.  Topics will cover the biology, ecosystems and environmental health of local habitats.  We will study human impacts in our community, learn about local ecosystems, and collect and analyze data that helps us to evaluate these ecosystems.  For example, we will collect and analyze water samples from a local source, discuss and study the community this source is part of, and return to the computer lab to import and graph our data.   This fun workshop will help students learn how they can study habitats near their homes, and help them to have a better understanding of the impacts of human activities on these habitats.


Course fee: $265.00
