This video is the culminating activity for students completing an ecological water pollution mystery. The mystery was solved using math (parts per million), science (water testing, ground water and the water cycle), topographical mapping (following plumes and determining point/non-point source pollution) and scientific reasoning. The students simulated a town meeting following the attached agenda as shown in the attached video to present their results and then review community options for next steps. Students took stakeholder roles in the presentation. Students will be applying these ideas to engage with their town representatives to discuss local issues with water pollution and engage with STEM-based improvement approaches that students can promote in the community.
