Welcome to the Environmental Science pages.
Environmental science is a multidisciplinary subject focussing on the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems. It integrates physical, biological and information sciences (incorporating elements from ecology, physics, chemistry, zoology, mineralogy, oceanology, soil science, geology, atmospheric science, geography and others).
The Curriculum for Excellence has qualifications in Environmental Science at national 3, 4 & 5 and at higher.
Until now, this is a subject that has largely been overlooked by SSERC but we think the time has come to try to support this subject just like we do the more traditional sciences. Activities we already have that we think fit into the Environmental Science curriculum have been linked and we hope to add further resources over the coming months.
