Get Excited About Environmental Science

Have you been wondering how to get your students excited about environmental science? You don’t have to go off site to give them the opportunity to explore ecological systems, learn about data collection, and engage in scientific inquiry. 

Join biology expert Colleen McDaniel to find out how you can introduce students to testing the soil, air, and water around them using Vernier technology—all without leaving your campus!

During this webinar, you will learn about

  • The basics of environmental monitoring using your favorite Vernier sensors, including the Go Direct® Weather System, Go Direct Light and Color Sensor, and our water quality sensors 
  • Ways to encourage students to come up with their own questions about variables around their school.
  • The seasonality of data collection and how students can measure environmental parameters at different times of the year
  • Suggestions and observations for data collection on campuses that are in urban versus rural settings

Find out how to give students the hands-on experience they need to collect environmental data, track patterns, make predictions, and suggest changes to improve the ecosystem’s overall health. Register now!
