About this Grantee

To improve their students’ environmental science skills, Ms. Rudd and Ms. Varras design research projects on a local site that is the center of controversy between environmentalists and developers. Students conduct research on a local community problem that has national implications and learn how industry affects ecosystems. After collecting and analyzing data, students share their findings, including recommendations for protecting the environment, with government agencies.
