Watersheds and Public Water Systems
The SEI Watersheds and Public Water Systems curriculum provides students with hands-on learning activities to explore how water flows through their local watershed, and is distributed and treated through their public water and waste water systems. Students gain an in-depth understanding of the importance of water, how water is treated and transported, and how humans are impacting water sources, as well as skills in computer applications, biology, and chemistry. Projects include creating a GIS Story Map of their local water systems, conducting water quality testing and analysis, and designing a water filter. Students are introduced to careers in the water industry ranging from ecologist to engineer.
