    p.e.e.c electrical students working while learning     by  chad smith pocono record writer december 16, 2012 a handful of monroe county career and technical institute students are working on a project to renovate several historic cabins at the pocono environmental education center in pike county. the 10 cabins date back to the 1950s, when the building that now houses the environmental center as well as the grounds it sits on, were actually a resort called honeymoon haven. the 10 cabins had been honeymoon suites. the environmental center built an additional 40 cabins in 2006. students and teachers who took educational trips overnight to the center were allowed to stay in the cabins. however, the 50s-era cabins needed a face-lift. so jeffrey rosalsky, the center's executive director, asked mcti if some of its students would be interested in doing the renovations. they said yes. on friday, the students were busy at work on one cabin, installing a shower and replacing the cabin's old, non-energy-efficient florida windows with energy efficient ones. the students began work on the cabin in october and have already installed all new plumbing and electrical wiring — the toughest parts of the job. the cabins are about 400 square feet, but possess all of the features of a regular-sized house, which makes the project a good learning experience. "it's great because the students get to do work in the actual world. and it helps them to better understand what to do when things don't go exactly as planned," said pat mchale, an mcti instructor who is overseeing the project. if all goes well with the one cabin, the idea is to renovate all 10. the renovated cabins will once again be used by students who visit the environmental center on educational trips. work on the first cabin should be finished by february. the environmental center is paying for all the materials that are being used in the renovation. the center hopes that members of the community can

      welcome to environmental biology environmental biology includes the scientific study of how living things interact with their environment.  included in this class are the basics of biology (the study of living things and their essential processes) as well as environmental issues like watersheds, wetlands, and aquatic ecosystems, agriculture and land use, sustainability, pest management, pollution control, waste management, and environmental health issues.  this class is designed to teach you to think and do science within the context of biology and environmental issues.   this is a community science, project-oriented class.  while there will be some lecture, the majority of the classwork is small group and individual projects.  homework is generally limited to completion of work started in class and viewing videos that introduce topics being covered in class.  we will work closely with the civics class to complete service learning projects related to the class and most of the projects will be tailored to make them specific to your program area.   success is simple - show up for class, do the work.   over the course of the year, you will be studying:   marking period 1   unifying themes of science s.t.e.m. nature of science characteristics of living things organization of living things energy flow in living things material transport and homeostasis in living things change in living things    marking period 2 water and living things watersheds wetlands aquatic ecosystems importance of agriculture applying science and technology to agriculture   marking period 3 sustainability integrated pest management pollution waste management human health issues   marking period 4   during the final marking period, students will engage in independent research related to some aspect of environmental science and their program area.  this could involve completing scientific research, writing a research paper,
