The purpose of Environmental Festival is for students to meet professionals who work in the environmental sciences every day, thereby gaining an understanding of how the science concepts they are learning in school apply to real life situations.
Students attend several presentations on environmental topics that allow them to be engaged in hands-on activities. The festival also provides students with the opportunity to learn about careers in various fields of environmental science and make a connection between science learning.
Environmental Festival is an event that takes place in March of every year. 5th grade students and their teachers from a 90 mile radius (and beyond!) attend this great event.
