Environmental Science Student Showcase

Biosphere 3 is an event created by environmental science teacher Eric Hickman in celebration of Earth Day with the help of his students in contributing to this big event. The event is hosted on April 24th, both throughout the school day and open to the public in the evening from 6-8 p.m. All are welcome to come.

Taking place in the Fanning Library, the students are fabricating 4 large biomes, Tundra, Tropical Rainforest, Deciduous Forest, and Desert, known as Biosphere 3 with interactive activities such as fossil dig and panning minerals.

The presentable projects have been created by each environmental science class. “My students have influenced me into doing this event,” said Hickman. 

In support of the event, English classes are assigned to write Japanese poems also known as Haiku. The Haikus written by each student in the building are being hung up on a tree in the Fanning Library. The Jeanne Spurlock Theatre is being transformed by the students into an underwater glow party for adults and children to enjoy.  

This event is to create an enjoyable but impactful project to help educate students on the lack of sustainability in the environment and to see how change can be made. “I’ve realized how great, committed and mature they are into handling this massive project.” said Hickman.   

As the days until the events dwindle, Hickman said, “I would not have been able to do this if weren’t for my students.” Hickman said.
