SCICON, currently designating the Clemmie Gill School of SCIence and CONservation, is an environmental education program providing sixth grade students opportunities to learn about science, conservation, and ecological relationships in the natural environment. The title, SCICON, designates both a school campus and an instructional program. Section I of this report describes the planning grant application, a two-part proposal to: (1) coordinate and facilitate a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to environmental education which integrates the natural sciences, behavioral sciences, and humanities into a unified approach to problem solving and learning, and (2) establish, under a unique administrative system, various centers and facilities for research and study. Section II gives an overview of the program, philosophy, and facilities. Formation, activities, findings and recommendations of the task force for developing the master plan are detailed in Section III. They consider centers for administration-operation, environmental education, humanities, and conferences. Section IV delineates educational specifications for the four centers, outlining requirements for site, planning, and space. A description of the long range planning program and a site and facilities map comprise Section V while Section VI deals with project development and construction - phasing and priorities, recommendations for additional land acquisition, and budget costs.
