CI Water (K-12; STEM, Science, Biology)
Description: Water is the foundation of life. Discover the importance of water, its unique properties, and water modeling. Use tools to collect specimens and data to better understand water in the environment and human use and impact on water. Use models to understand watersheds, meteoric, and groundwater systems, and predict impacts based on droughts, human use, and pollution. Create art and actionable items to work for change in our communities and schools. This CI-Water toolbox is an initiative of the NSF EPSCoR project that intends to:
- Foster STEM learning through coordinated K-12 activities between Wyoming and Utah.
- Foster collaborative research and strategic partnerships among institutions, junior faculty, students, and industry professionals.
- Engage the general public and increase cyber-literacy and regional water understanding.
