Harold Washington College

Grant Winner Badge

Using the technology provided through the Vernier grant, Harold Washington College will develop a new collaborative water quality monitoring project. As part of the project, students enrolled in general chemistry courses will work with students in geographic information sciences as a cross-disciplinary team and use Vernier equipment to make measurements in the field.

The project will develop students’ critical workforce and thinking skills, as well as promote quantitative literacy and community awareness. The project will also have a service learning component as the sampling areas will be determined in consultation with the Friends of the Chicago River and the Alliance for the Great Lakes.
