Work of Science Cert Students Noted in Reformer

Rachel Brett and Amanda Gurgul, students in AUNE’s Department of Environmental Studies, were featured in the April 24 issue of the Brattleboro Reformer. Brett and Gurgul have been working with fifth- and sixth-grade students in the NewBrook Elementary School in Newfane, Vermont, to implement the Wild Treasures, Sustainably, Naturally, curriculum program. The students researched the sustainability of their school, and then decided to cut down on their food waste.

The project was helped by a grant from C&S Wholesale Grocers.

Brett and Gurgul rewrote the curriculum for Wild Treasures as part of their final project. Wild Treasures is a curriculum program, directed by Jimmy Karlan, director of AUNE’s science teacher certification concentration. In the year-long program, AUNE students visit classes weekly to help students complete a sustainable initiative in their schools.
