Educational Programs - Get Wet!
Groundwater Education Through Water Evaluation and Testing
Students solving drinking water issues…
This student-scientist project affords an opportunity to increase local participation and understanding of regional issues through a teacher-directed public summary of their research results.
Get Wet! offers opportunities to educators, students, local governments, and the general public to learn about their local natural history and allows them to draw the connection between land use and water quality.
The information gathered becomes part of a data repository by establishing a long-term town-centered monitoring program that can be used by the community to formulate productive choices in planning, management, and development. Student data are also added to a growing database managed on a GIS program (i.e., Google Earth).
This web site is currently being developed at the Mitchell Center to link involved communities and house data as well as resources for teachers, students, and future facilitators.
