Pinewood Elementary School


Project Description:
Using water quality monitoring kits, students in sixth-grade science classes learned to measure water quality in a creek at Hager Park in Georgetown Township near their school. Teachers incorporated macroinvertebrate monitoring with chemical water tests to measure water quality. In addition, students cleaned and marked storm drains on and around school grounds to reduce stormwater impact to the local watershed. To support these efforts, students designed and distributed informational materials related to their project.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship:
This place-based project has empowered students with future difference-making skills. Students know first-hand how to make decisions in their personal lives that reflect what they have learned from this project.
