Log Number: IGSM-249149-OMS-21
The Christa McAuliffe Center for Integrated Science Learning at Framingham State University will implement a team mentorship and project-based learning program for local high school students. Program participants are tasked with creating campaigns (exhibits, videos, and presentations) that increase awareness of environmental challenges helping participants to develop knowledge, analytical and communication skills, and ethical viewpoints that guide their actions on local and global environmental issues. Project outcomes include the student-created exhibits, videos, and presentations that increase understanding of the interconnected relationships among community, economy and the environment; appreciation of the impacts of personal actions both locally and globally; and, eventually, changes in behavior.
