Project EARTH (Environmental Awareness Research Through Hands-on activities) is dedicated to connecting students to science and technology. Through its goals and principles, seventh grade students become "actively" involved in science. Project EARTH stresses scientific exploration, environmental concerns, good communication, math skills and connects students to the Internet and world resources.
Student-centered learning, provides students with the opportunities to explore, research and investigate science through hands-on experience. By using computers, students learn technology for tomorrow. While setting and meeting clearly defined goals in the immediate classroom, students develop strong language arts and math skills that connect them with science.
The main components of Project EARTH include:
Impact Science Magazine - A student-published science magazine
Geophysical Data Center - A computer research center dedicated to monitoring and reporting earthquakes and volcanoes world-wide
Student Science Symposium - A student centered symposium with investigative topics and findings reported by students
