Future Water Stewardship and Fact-based Water Policy: An Aquatic Science Education Pathway Model
MetadataShow full metadata
Texas Aquatic Science originated from a project seeking better ways to educate students about water because of concern that current education was failing to promote good decisions about water by adult citizens and political leaders. A comprehensive water education curriculum was developed to engage learners from middle school through university using an education pathway to create water-savvy citizens of tomorrow who will take personal action to ensure effective stewardship of water and support evidence-based water policies. This paper will describe the pathway and present results of research on the pathway’s effectiveness with middle and high school students and teachers.
