• From AP Environmental Science teacher Taylor Knoke on January 10, 2024:
     
    "I wanted to share the activity that my AP Environmental Science students completed today. We have been studying the environmental impacts of different mining methods. Today, they had to buy a cookie "mine" and tools, and then mine for ore (chocolate chips). The goal was to have a low environmental impact while also making money. The students learned that there are a lot of different decisions that go into the mining process, and that having a low environmental impact is very difficult."
