Stroud Water Research Grant Awarded

The Stroud Water Research Center was one of three grant recipients nationwide awarded by the EPA, with The STEM Academy a sub-grantee. The project goal is to use STEM skills to identify freshwater and environmental questions and develop appropriate scientific studies and create valuable, replicable curricula tools that enable citizens, students and teachers to collect and share environmental monitoring data for monitoring water resources.

Mr. Podlesney, STEM Academy Biology teacher, will be participating in the summer of 2017 in a workshop to build a do-it-yourself, low cost environmental monitoring device which will be installed in local waterways to collect data for the EPA regarding water quality. The building process, data collection and analytics will involve STEM students and be used in the biology unit on the environment.
