The Global Water Sampling Project DLESE Reviewed Collection
This on-line project is part of the Center for Improved Engineering and Science Education (CIESE) program, which has developed internet activities for the elementary, middle, and high school level student. This project involves comparing the water quality of local rivers, streams, lakes or ponds with other fresh water sources around the world. The focus is to assess the quality of water based on physical characteristics and chemical substances, and to look for relationships and trends among the data collected by all participants. The project provides instructions, activities, worksheets, data links, reference materials, on-line help, back-up information, and a teacher area.
