This year’s Los Alamos County Science Fair drew 157 entries. The last Saturday morning in January, I was at the high school cafeteria. The room was abustling with fresh hopes and ideas.Our three-judge team had six special awards from the Sierra Club to give for the best projects on the environment. Projects are in categories by field of science and student class – elementary, junior, and senior (high school). Winners were announced in last Thursday’s Monitor.To start our judging, our team first had to decide which projects to judge. Exactly what is part of the environment, and what is something else?Environment itself is two fields: the science and the management. But many nearby fields also crowd in.Some projects, but not all, in animal science fit in. The same is true of plant science, life science, biology, engineering, energy and transportation, even chemistry, physics, computer science and human behavior.
Lesson One: The environment is an aggregate of many factors and lots of science.
