IISD - Experimental Lakes Area High School Environmental Student Learning Experience
This July 12 - 24, 2020 marks the sixth annual IISD Experimental Lakes Area Environment Science Experience. This field course is offered for students who will be entering 11th or 12th grade in the fall of 2020. Students work with their peers, two adult leaders and participating scientists through long days observing, helping, asking, answering, doing and learning a phenomenal amount about environmental science. By engaging directly with the science happening at ISD - ELA students learn limnology, the "whole system" concept, chemistry, ecological interaction and human impacts on the environment.
During week one, students will accompany different scientists each day as they continue their field work in a diverse range of practical environmental research programs. Between weeks one and two, students will regroup, recharge and plan while on a 4-day refreshing and challenging backcountry canoe trip through the heart of this world-renowned wilderness canoeing area.
During week two, students will follow their own unique path of research, learning more about the processes of environmental science in the field, and about the ongoing IISD - ELA science that especially interests them.
