Science Buddies has great ideas for hands-on science projects and activities students can do to learn more about environmental science.
This week is National Environmental Education Week (EE Week 2016)!
There are many projects at Science Buddies that help guide students in independent exploration of environmental science topics and issues. The list below highlights a handful of projects related to recycling, stewardship, conservation, and environmental awareness from our library of more than 1,100 science projects for K-12 students.
The following list represents a collection of exciting K-12 student science, technology, engineering, and math projects with an environmental science focus:
