Description:

Students are assigned specific sites in the municipal of interest (sites that are suspected of being brownfields).They are expected to use the Web (NJ DEP) to find out as much information as they can about the history of the site and then visit the site to provide information about the physical characteristics of the site (including photos and GPS readings). They are then asked to provide a write-up describing the site, highlighting both its positive and negative points (to a potential buyer). The next step is to upload this information to the NJSITEMART website for developers to see. Students are then asked to defend their write-ups. A group of 4 students is expected to work on about 20 sites.
