Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.NGSS MS ESS-3-3
Design a solution to monitor or mitigate the potential effects of the use of natural resources. Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well each solution meets the criteria and constraints of the problem. Examples of uses of the natural environment could include agriculture, conservation efforts, recreation, solar energy, and water management.Utah SEEd 8.4.3
