In May 2010 the Ewing Halsell Foundation granted funds to the Harte Research Institute (HRI) and the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment (Meadows Center) to devise novel experiential, technology-enhanced ways to improve water education for students and teachers, from Texas' headwaters to the ocean. That project has become widely known simply as “H2O.” In Phase I of H2O, HRI and Meadows Center readied water education for students that will profoundly change how today’s youth engage and relate to water -- creating tomorrow's adults who will understand and advocate wise water use.
Phase I work developed an extensive suite of experiential (hands-on and interactive) water education curricula and learning tools. These are designed for use out-of-doors and in classrooms, and are enhanced by exciting and powerful new multi-media and mobile technologies sought by today’s youth.
A list of the accomplishments, water education curricula, teaching enhancements and tools, along with links to more detailed information, are contained in the following table. These are broken down into seven categories:
- Progress reports, updates, and H2O websites
- Curricula for students, and teacher training and support
- Technology enhancements and tools for education and education research
- Teacher workshops
- STEM Corps
