The unique focus for the week will be the investigation of multidisciplinary nature of the environmental
science curriculum through terrestrial ecology, agriculture and food resources.
Environmental Science is the most multidisciplinary of the AP science subjects. This workshop will
incorporate both lecture and laboratory aspects of the course. Designed for the experienced and new
AP Environmental Science teacher, this course will consider the challenges of starting, continuing and
enhancing a successful APES program.
Participants will complete a variety of field activities, including an array of useful techniques for
analyzing plant and animal populations in terrestrial ecosystems. Methods will incorporate both
traditional techniques and calculator-based labs.
The most useful websites for APES teachers and students will be investigated thoroughly.
This institute will incorporate significant fieldwork and participants should be prepared for light hiking
over short distances.
We are currently planning AP Summer Institute 2014!
