  • CUAHSI Database of Education and Outreach Programs (1163)

    To assist the aquatic sciences community in identifying existing education and outreach programs that might be useful outlets for their research, the CUAHSI Education and Outreach program has developed a database of existing hydrology-related education and outreach groups around the US. These groups may be useful as partners to meet NSF “broader impact� requirements or may provide information that may help researchers better design and tailor their own outreach programs. Each resource includes the internet site where the data was found along with a relevant description of the specific outreach program. The database has been organized to enable searching based on the following criteria: Geographic location (national to local); Type of organization (e.g., federal, nonprofit, commercial, etc.); Target audience / education level; and Open text searches on Themes, Keywords, and Descriptions.

  • Water on the Web (1290)

    The primary goal of Water on the Web (WOW) is to train students to understand and solve real-world environmental problems. WOW contains two sets of curricula. Basic Science offers opportunities for high school and first year college students to learn basic science through hands-on science activities, in the lab and in the field, and by working with state-of-the-art technologies accessible through this web site. Water Science offers a two-semester water resource management curriculum for second year technical students or undergraduates in water resource management, water science, or environmental resource management programs.

  • Center for Environmental Education Online (1233)

    The Center for Environmental Education (CEE) was founded as a clearinghouse for educational resources by Jayni and Chevy Chase in 1989. Almost a decade later, the Center moved to Antioch New England Graduate School, a stronghold for environmental education; and more recently CEE developed this website to assist environmental educators around the globe. The heart of the site is an extensive curriculum library that contains annotated links to resources under a broad range of environmental categories including Biodiversity, Food, Waste, Population, and more. The site also offers an online newsletter covering a variety of pertinent topics for environmental educators (updated weekly), a special section regarding green schools, and a Hot Topics section.
