Case Study 2: RE@L Water-Quality Investigations
“The first RE@L STEM Investigations module is Water Quality. Students learn the importance of water quality and how it impacts local watersheds. They identify the parameters that indicate a healthy body of water. Students conduct a field survey of a local water source using an online Geographic Information System (GIS) to record and share measurements of water quality obtained through chemical testing and invertebrate population counts.
The classroom data and findings are delivered online and through live presentations to other classes and community organizations including the local Department of Natural Resources (DNR).”
RE@L also brings a game-breaking, new teaching and learning tool to STEM: a virtual, online, on-demand portal of essential teaching and learning resources.
