Watershed Education

What Makes Us Nervous about Watershed
Education? What Solutions Are There?





Preparing for, then processing,
what it means to do "raindrop roll play"




Some of us work harder on this than others....



There may be gender-differentiated responses (?)
to the instructions to "place your cones on the edge
of the watershed for this drain"


A gender-specific group gathers on the moon bench
to discuss the science behind the superstition....




We then move on to "Vital Signs":
Assessing the Health of the Pond


"The old group" tests the water chemistry

"The young group" monitors the water temperature

The "we teach everything" group measures
the volumetric discharge into the pond


We gather to share data



Young, old and everyone re-locate to the stream
While Anne focuses on people,
Wil focuses on...


What's Important in Science Education?
