Students modelling environmental issues

Santos, Arion de Castro Kurtz dos; Thielo, Marcelo Resende; Kleer, Ana Alzira


This work is based on a Brazilian project that aims to promote the use of a semi-quantitative tool with students (11 - 18 years old) in topics about local environmental problems. The paper presents the VISQ program, a network to analyse models, a set of tasks and three examples of models made by students. Results suggest that the VISQ program is suitable for use in Environmental Education as while working with the proposed tasks students thought at a system level becoming aware of some local environmental issues.
