Wastewater in Watersheds: The Perfect STEM Topic

Middle and high school science, biology, chemistry, environmental science, engineering and math teachers

Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Headquarters (Boat House)

131 Waquoit Highway, Waquoit, MA 02536

Friday and Saturday, April 8 and 9, 2015

9:00 am-4:00 pm

14 PDPs (free) or one graduate credit ($75 from Framingham State)

Dorm housing may be available ($20/night, reservations required)

 

Teachers will try out classroom, lab, and web-based activities; explore coastal habitats, and visit a large wastewater treatment plant as well as experimental wastewater treatment systems including an oyster aquaculture project.

The course incorporates investigations in the field and the use of on-line data, and will introduce teachers to research and researchers including Scott Wankel, a researcher at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) working at Waquoit Bay Reserve studying the interactions between nitrogen and iron cycling in groundwater and aquifer sediments using isotopes (“Unraveling a cryptic subsurface nitrogen cycle”). Dr. Wankel received an NSF grant which is partially funding these workshops so the course is offered free of charge.

Course content and activities align with Massachusetts state STE frameworks and Next Generation Science Standards.

Lunches and take home materials included.

1 graduate credit ($75) is available through Framingham State University

14 PDPs are available through the Cape Cod STEM Network More information and complete syllabus available at http://www.waquoitbayreserve.org/education-training/education-programs/teacher-training/
