Scientists and professionals from numerous organizations have collaborated to provide college and high school students with a plethora of tutorials and modules to help them "understand and solve real-world environmental problems." Users can find two sets of curricula: Basic Science for high school and first-year college students; and Water Science for second-year technical students or undergraduates in water resource management, water science, or environmental resource management programs. The site offers links to animated data, maps, and auxiliary materials for lakes and rivers in the United States. By visiting a series of primers, visitors can learn about instrumentation, water quality, watersheds, GIS, and more. The website is equipped with a helpful glossary and a wealth of links. Frequent visitors can check out the What's New page to discover the latest educational additions.
