Environmental Sciences at DFES

Environmental Sciences at DFES capture many of our school beliefs as we embed them throughout our school day.

The field of environmental science can be divided into three main goals:

1. To learn how the natural world works.

2. To understand how we as humans interact with the environment.

3. To determine how we affect the environment and find ways to deal with these effects on the environment.
