Students Graduate from Worldwide Water Network STEM Camp
By Tomi Bergstrom, West Virginia Project WET Coordinator
The West Virginia Project WET Program, in partnership with West Virginia State University's CASTEM program, is proud to announce that 17 middle school students have successfully completed their Worldwide Water Network STEM Camp. The camp was virtually presented by the Project WET Program housed in the Watershed Improvement Branch of the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection over a span of four weeks, offering new water-focused STEM activities for the students to complete at home each week. West Virginia middle school students delineated watersheds, learned about topographic maps, assessed stream health, built their own watershed models, installed green infrastructure on their models within a city's budget, and explored ocean acidification, calcareous animals, and ocean zones. We had a WONDERFUL time getting to know these bright students.
