Around Campus - Intro to Environmental Science

Posted by Andy Cunningham on March 21, 2023 at 11:13 AM

Environmental and Earth Science Professor Christopher Picone discussed forms of energy in his Intro to Environmental Science class. Students were shown the rooftop photovoltaic solar panels (PVs) installed here at Fitchburg State University in 2011. Later, a demonstration of how a turbine does was interlaced with a lesson in wind power. The goal of Introduction to Environmental Science is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts and methodologies required to understand interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems and to examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them.
