Agreement with Bowling Green Independent School District

Agreement with Bowling Green Independent School District

During the 2011-2012 school year, the CEES Program Coordinator, Robin Hume, will be working with Bowling Green Independent School District to provide their elementary teachers with resources for Science instruction. She will be working with the district two days per week to provide instructional support for Science teachers. She will also be available to lead Science lab experiences for teachers upon request. This partnership will hopefully help teachers plan instruction for Science more easily and will also allow more opportunities for the children to learn Science concepts through environmental education.

In the Fall, Robin and other members of the CEES staff will be taking fourth graders from Bowling Green City Schools to perform a water quality analysis at Trammel Creek.  Students will be testing pH levels, dissolved oxygen levels, the presence of certain macroinvertebrates, and the velocity of the water.  Students will use this information to determine the quality of the water in Trammel Creek.
