Please join us as Environmental Science students from all four Terrebonne Parish public high schools share what they have learned through two unique programs this school year:

Project Resilience:  Empowering Gulf Coast Youth to Thrive in Transformative Communities

Students from each of the four public high schools particpated in a 20-day curriculum that is culminating with student-developed plans for $10,000 resilience projects being constructed at each of the schools.

Cyclone Resilience on Our Coast

Students at South Terrebonne High School have been working together to learn how hurricane characteristics relate to people’s experiences during storms. Students interviewed local residents to collect their stories of experiences during storms and, along with climate scientists from the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Center for Science Education, analyzed the data and connected local stories with hurricane model results that project into the future.
