Promoting Student Environmental Literacy

Hands-on scientific exploration of Low Impact Development features during the SWEP hosted Science Festival Assemblies where students use models to simulate a storm event. Students observe and analyze how that water is filtered through vegetated swales, catchment basins, and drip line trenches, leading to either poor water quality or high water quality.

Students explore stormwater and the effects pollution has on the health of our watershed while experimenting with filtration methods to produce clean water. Students conduct experiments to discover the best filtration systems and testing our various materials to turn dirty water into clean water before it enters the watershed.
