This high-school level class combines Life Science and Earth Science, touching on Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering, and applies it to real world issues.  Through mathematical modeling, labs, case studies, and projects, we explore human impact on the environment using the scientific processes, including proper data collection, and responsible conclusions.  Topics include ecology, energy flow, ecological structures, earth systems, as well as atmospheric, land, and water science.  Discussions include management of natural resources and analysis of private and governmental decisions involving the environment.
