Public Science Milestone 1

Your Public Science project is an individual assignment to challenge you to find, select, and summarize information about electronic waste recycling in your community. To do this, you will have to identify reliable sources of information and… reach out to people and offices to learn more. Summarize what you learn, and gradually, with every milestone, create a resource that can be read by the public to learn about sustainable practices. Your Public Science Project Milestone 1 is due Friday, 1/26, at 5 pm. For this milestone, review the guidelines and check that you have identified at least five sources, explained each one in a couple of sentences, and provided a 3-5 sentence overview. 

Please let us know if you have questions.
