High school science just got a little more meaningful. While learning about hydrologic systems, high school students will engage in using computer models to understand groundwater flow and use groundwater flow to understand computer modeling concepts. Kristin L. Gunckel from UA collaborates with Colorado State University, University of Montana, and Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies on this research project. In Tucson, Sunnyside Unified School District (SUSD) science high school teachers will have lessons that use the Tucson Airport Remediation Project (TARP) as the context for modeling groundwater flow. Over time, by following the students’ learning progressions, the project aims to build better curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
