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).

Scientists reflect on what the recent change in US administration means. In the days following the election of Barack Obama to the presidency, much of the popular and journalistic discussion of the environment equated í˘ŒóŒěenvironmentí˘ŒóŒ with í˘ŒóŒěclimate change,í˘ŒóŒ and í˘ŒóŒěclimate changeí˘ŒóŒ with í˘ŒóŒěenergy policy.í˘ŒóŒ But with scientists for whom the environment has been a long-term preoccupation, the needs are broader and more complex. Climate change is an imminent threat, but so are invasions of nonnative species; habitat loss and fragmentation; the pollution of water, land, and air; society's reluctance or inability to recognize the importance of ecosystem services; the values of modeling, interagency cooperation, and multidisciplinary study; scientific education; and many other pressing issues.

Developed by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, this website provides access to quality educational resources that deal with this timely topic. As one might expect, the site is divided into three primary sections: students, teachers, and scientists. With this rock-solid triumvirate, visitors can peruse these sections for specific materials that will be of use for their own specific purposes. In the students section, visitors can find links that will assist them with their assignments, and also learn from a number of interactive activities that deal with topics such as food safety, public health, and water pollution. Educators will breathe a sigh of relief when they get to the Teachers section, as it is easy to navigate, and it contains over sixty separate pieces of curricular material, all arranged by subject area (such as cancer or assays).
