    Project Info


    It is requiredthat all students submit a formal project as a component of the final AICE course score.


    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 too 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.
