Our team meets regularly to improve our knowledge in the four content areas: wildlife, aquatics, forestry and soils. In November we receive a real world, environmental problem to solve. The problem is elaborate and open ended. We work on a solution to the problem until the competition in mid May.
At the competition the students take a test (as a team) in each of the four content areas. This often includes hands on performance tasks such as identifying organisms, delineating a watershed, and performing forestry related calculations. They also present their solution to the environmental problem in front of a panel of judges.
At each station the team receives a score. The team with the highest score representsVermontat the Canon Envirothon (the North American competition).
