Addressing Aquatic Invasives
April 23, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Tackling aquatic invasives presents special challenges for educators. Bob Thomson uses inquiry methods with a place-based format to ensure that students are participants in the educational process rather than observers. He’ll describe the grade 5 research programs he developed to conduct population analyses of individual invasive species in his local watershed and to use underwater robots to study the impact of invasive mussels on shipwrecks. Alice Holcomb and Melissa Doubek will describe the activities they use in their River Rats summer program to help younger students learn about invasive species.
Presenters: Melissa Doubek, Alice Holcomb and Bob Thomson
