Environmentally Conscious

In order to raise awareness of the multitude of environmental concerns plaguing the planet, R.C. Murphy Junior High School seventh-grade science classes completed a final quarter project focused on topics in environmental science.

During the multiweek project, the students researched a current environmental issue or concern, conducted an environmental experiment or completed a citizen science project aimed at making the world a safer, healthier place. Projects spanned such topics as the study of bacteria and pollution in Long Island waters, tips for preventing wildfires and soils effect on the PH of water.

At the completion of their work, each student was required to visually display their findings on presentation boards.
