Hi! I’m Alex Davolio, I’ve been at basis since the 5th grade and am graduating this year. For the next 10 weeks, I will be blogging about the research I will be doing about the benefits of environmental education on children. Throughout high school, I’ve always been interested in environmental science and sustainability, and I plan to pursue an environmental engineering major in college. Through my project, I will explore the benefits of environmental education on children, seeing if these types of programs show a significant change in the behaviors and actions of this generation, hopefully leading to more sustainable practices. For my on-site, I plan on working with an organization specializing in environmental education in an after-school program to collect data through observations and surveys in hopes of seeing positive results. My final deliverable will be a research paper about my findings, outlining the benefits of environmental education for children. If you want any more details on my project my proposal is linked here.
I look forward to starting my research and blogging about my progress.
