Social Science Sleuths is a class for homeschooled middle and high school students. This winter the topic will be Environmental Sociology. The class meets Monday mornings at 10:30 at the Hessen Cassel Library, 3030 E Paulding Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46816.

What happens when people start messing around with the environment?  What if they improve it? Sometimes changes turn out for the better, sometimes we mess up entire eco-systems. Environmental Sociology looks at this interaction between people and the natural world - come explore!
