This University of California College Prep (UCCP) Advanced Placement (AP) Environmental Science online course has five objectives: Describe the six different forms of energy and the type of work done by each form. Discuss the roles of sources and sinks in an energy budget. Define the Law of Conservation of Energy, and explain how the operation of fuel cell vehicles illustrates this principal. Name the units with which energy, power, and force are measured and described. Use energy flow within a house to explain both theoretical and practical aspects of energy use and conservation. Less

One of the most rewarding and challenging aspects of teaching an advanced placement environmental science course is finding enriching field and lab activities for your students. These labs have been developed by an experienced team of environmental science educators in partnership with the Environmental Literacy Council. Each lab has been the subject of an extensive peer review by a number of experienced environmental science educators. The content of this initial collection is varied, and APES teachers and students in different areas around the country should be able to complete each of the labs. These initial labs are not typical cookbook variety. They each contain an inquiry-based component. Over time, additional labs and tools for new and experienced teachers will be added to the collection. Less

Archive of the Environmental Science Seminar Series, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society (AMS), presenting talks by major research scientists. The series is aimed at the general public and moderated by Dr. Anthony Socci (Senior Science Fellow, AMS). The archive includes summaries, powerpoint presentations (in HTML and PDF), and speaker biographies for each of the seminars, which have been offered approximately once a month since May 2005. The June 2007 presentation by Dr. Naomi Oreskes (History, UCSD), entitled "The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change: How Do We Know We Are Not Wrong?" is accompanied by the full text of her chapter by the same title in DeMento and Doughman, eds., Climate Change (MIT Press, 2007).
