Looking for something to do from home?

Learn about environmental science with UMass Lowell students!

Are you a middle or high school student interested in environmental science? Are you curious about what it’s like to be a college student majoring in environmental science, climate change, and sustainability?

UMass Lowell students majoring in environmental science, climate change, and sustainability are offering free small group or individual Zoom sessions for middle and high school students while so many of us are stuck at home.

Is there anything specific you would like to discuss or learn about during your session? Feel free to reach out to climate_change@uml.edu for any questions or requests regarding scheduling and content. Hope to see you there!

Meet Your Instructors

Fiona Benzi and Lucia Cheney

My name is Fiona Benzi and my co-leader is Lucia Cheney and we are sophomores at UMass Lowell majoring in environmental science with a minor in climate change and sustainability.

I have five years of camp counselor experience at a Mass Audubon Science/Nature Camp and have four years of coaching experience on a swim team, in which I worked with a wide range of ages. I’m offering these sessions because I’d love to middle and high school students gain a deeper understanding of the world around them. My co-leader Lucia is interested in educating young people about the rapid change that Earth systems are undergoing so that they can better prepare for their own college careers and entering a changing workforce.
