Paul O’Hanlon of TFMoran volunteers with NH Envirothon

TFMoran Environmental Permitting Specialist, Paul O’Hanlon volunteered with the NH Envirothon Student Science Competition last week, held at NHTI in Concord.

NH Envirothon is an annual competition that introduces students to the STEM field to build real-world connections and gain experience in the professional field. Its mission is to introduce students to the STEM field at a young age, providing skills in protecting our natural resources and conservation in conjunction with the growth of society today.

Students participating in the Envirothon are subject to testing across a broad range of subjects within the Environmental Field: Introducing or honing skills in soils, aquatic ecology, wildlife, forestry, and current events in the field today. Volunteers accompanied student groups to testing “stations”, providing guidance and information as needed (without revealing answers, of course).

Once testing was completed, students gathered in an auditorium to hear from guest speakers working in the STEM field, and the winners were announced.
