Syracuse City Schools to take ESF’s Environmental Challenge

Projects to explore environmental issues

More than 600 students from the Syracuse City School District (SCSD) will participate in the College of Environmental Science and Forestry's (ESF) Environmental Challenge science fair Tuesday, May 23.

The science fair will take place on the field of the Carrier Dome from 9:30 to 11 a.m.

The Environmental Challenge, in its 16th year, is designed to encourage student projects that support and extend the seventh- and eighth-grade science curriculum; foster student and teacher research, scientific inquiry, and critical thinking; expand student exploration of science, engineering, and related careers and educational interests; and increase student exploration and understanding of the urban environment and its relationship to the global environment.

For more information about the Environmental Challenge, contact Maura Stefl, 470-6811. Information is also available at http://www.esf.edu/outreach/k12/sciencefair/
