CAREER PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Environmental Technology program is an inquiry-based, project-oriented curriculum developing student skills in collecting, analyzing, and communicating environmental data. This field-based program immerses students into the diversity of New England environments, including mountains, forests, ponds, streams, coastal habitats, shorelines, and the ocean. The overall goal for each student is to develop a “toolbox,” of technical skills necessary for successful employment in the competitive environmental science field or for further education. Students learn field skills, Geographic Information System digital mapping, water chemistry, Aquaculture and fish science, impacts of manmade pollutants on the coastal ecosystems, and take the OSHA 40 hour Hazwoper course.
