CEE Students participate in World Water Monitoring Day

Environmental and Water Resource Engineering students partnered with grade school students for World Water Monitoring Day (WWMD).| Short Read

Graduate students Adam Smith, Roya Gitiafroz, Dongjuan “Joan” Dai, and Professor Lut Raskin helped 50 third and fourth grade students from Angell Elementary School in Ann Arbor to participate in WWMD in June 2009. One of the student groups submitted a short report, which is featured on the WWMD website (http://www.worldwatermonitoringday.org/). While they were provided with background material before and after the sampling and analyses, the report was written by the students without our input!
