This course provides "hands-on" opportunities for students to collect and analyze data about chemicals found in the environment. Students will learn how to collect and analyze soil, water and air samples for environmental quality parameters and the presence of pollutants. Analysis of samples will involve the use of readily available field test equipment. Field trips for sample collection will take place during laboratory periods or at arranged times. There may also be field trips to environmental analytical laboratories.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

SLO #1: SOLVE CHEMISTRY PROBLEMS AT AN APPROPRIATE LEVEL BY ANALYZING THE GIVEN DATA FOR ITS SIGNIFICANCE, BY FORMULATING A SOLUTION STRATEGY, AND BY EXPRESSING THE RESULTS IN PROPER FORMAT.
