By Team 0: Louisiana Judy Armstrong Michelle Hicks Linda Messina Michelle Smith Protecting Your Watershed: Modeling of Surface- Water Quality
Purpose To develop and implement practical, experiential, environmental education and research curriculum to address local ecosystems.
Goal The primary goal of this project is to train students and teachers in methods of ecosystem monitoring and restoration.
Process Student’s will analyze water quality over time using lab and CBL equipment Possible variables are: coliform bacteria dissolved oxygen nitrates phosphates salinity pH Temperature
Computational Model Students will then analyze and develop mathematical models from the collected data to determine trends or disturbances. Possible Modeling Tools: –Excel –Stella graphical model
Assessment rubrics data analysis presentation and discussion of project laboratory skill based assessments laboratory/report portfolios written assessments of key concepts
