Description:

The Center for Improved Engineering and Science Education (CIESE) has developed this online project to allow students around the world to compare the organisms found in water samples they collect from local ponds. This year's project will run from March 15 - June 1. Classes will develop a hypothesis, collect data to be shared with other participants, analyze the shared data, and complete a final report to be posted online. The Teacher Area includes instructions for submitting reports and lesson plans about topics like macroinvertebrate identification. Check out the Student Area to see the reports completed last year. This is a neat project to get students actively involved in questioning the world around them and to introduce them to collaborative scientific experiments. The main CIESE Web page has other projects that are worth investigating as well.
