Water Quality Data Connects the Bay to the Classroom

Potomac River education water quality-Sam Woolford-695x352

Almost every day from March through December, student and adult groups take part in field experiences with CBF, conducting hands-on scientific investigations. Now, using a phone app and GIS software, participants can quickly and easily record water quality data collected on our field programs. By compiling more than 600 data points (and counting!) in a publicly available online map, we preserve this data so that all can get a better idea of the health of our waterways. This map can also serve as a classroom teaching tool and a place for students to explore or revisit some topics they investigate in the field using sophisticated online tools. Check out the interactive water quality map.
