About the Class – Environmental Science for Teenagers
The Pearl High School’s Environmental Science Class is taught by Robin Harwick, Ph.D, the founder of The Pearl High School! Robin is an author, scholar, and consultant. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and Management, from New Mexico Highlands University. She has also earned a Master of Science in Special Education and a Doctorate in Secondary Special Education and Transition from the University of Oregon.
This online environmental science class gives high school students the opportunity to investigate the interconnectedness of natural systems and how humans affect those systems. They will also analyze current environmental issues and propose solutions. This is an interdisciplinary high school science class.
How does it work?
We teach our classes online, using Zoom, and they are open worldwide! Homeschool students who take classes at the Pearl are eligible to earn a WASC-Accredited US high school diploma. Even homeschool students who attend The Pearl from outside the US are still eligible to receive a US diploma. This makes the Pearl an excellent option for students who struggle in mainstream education.
The Pearl utilizes democratic education, meaning students are self directed and learn through the lens of the things they are passionate about. Environmental Science is a great subject for this education structure. This is because, environmental projection is something that heavily impacts our youth of today. This class allows students to study environmental issues they are passionate about and get involved in a way that feels important and relevant to them.
