Grant Winner Badge

Berkeley Middle School plans to create an innovative initiative to improve student awareness of local water quality issues. The initiative includes active student engagement across disciplines through the use of data collection, analysis, and discussion. The project will be aligned with Virginia’s State Standards of Learning in Science, Math, Social Studies, and English and have middle school faculty and students collaborate with faculty and students from the biology department of the College of William and Mary to conduct grade-specific investigations. Through an inquiry-based study of local water quality using a variety of Vernier probeware, students in grades 6-8 will become actively engaged in developing an understanding of their impact on natural resources and their civic responsibility to preserve them.
