    Reminder all projects found on line must be adapted by the student and not copied exactly - THAT WOULD BE PLAGARISM.

    Instructions for Projects - Pick a topic relating to environmental management which is research and opinions on use and conservation of natural resources, protection of habitats and control of pollution. Projects should relate to a local issue and be focused on a single variable (something like global warming is way to broad). Projects need to have a quantitative way to measure the outcome. The timeline for projects allows about 2 months to collect data with multiple runs after the initial trials to modify if needed. Access to needed materials should be considered when developing the project.

    Over summer you should - pick a topic 

                                                  - Define your variables 

                                                  - Special materials needed

                                                  - Outline for when your project will be tested.
