Water Science: Students study in Trammel Creek
(click title for the Bowling Green Daily News article)
Instead of learning about science at their desks, elementary school students performed experiments while wading in Trammel Creek last week as part of an annual program that continues this week. The program is a partnership between WKU’s Center for Environmental Education and Sustainability and the General Motors Bowling Green Assembly Plant. Terry Wilson, director of the center, has been running the program for the six years it’s been in Bowling Green.
Development of a "Disconnected Classroom" started October 18, 2013, in Warren County, KY, with installing a vernal pond to provide real-life experiences with scientific material through discovery learning.
Phase 2a for the initial road and utility infrastructure, including permeable parking and a road-length bioswale designed to help with stormwater management, was completed in fall, 2013, using EPA 319(h) funds from the KY Division of Water.
This NASA-funded project will implement an innovative collaborative project that addresses the need to increase the number of qualified science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) educators.
The season of Fall welcomes Potter-Gray Elementary School to Trammel Creek in Alvaton, KY to learn about water quality testing.
