Kent Innovation High


Project Description:
Kent Innovation introduced the concept of watersheds,then students choose how to mitigate the negative influences on our watershed. Students developed a 5k run for the Lower Grand River Organization of Watersheds to raise awareness, created a natural outdoor learning space, and evaluated stormwater runoff on the Intermediate School District’s campus. They learned how to organize their work and contact community partners to enhance their products.
