Mini-grant leads to modern data collection

Heather Nicholson’s 7th grade science students at Mt. Gilead Middle School have gained new technology from a Feed the World mini-grant. The students are using iPads to complete virtual labs and collect lab data. This spring, they will be using the iPads as they collect water quality data from creeks and streams in our community. Nicholson said, “Curriculum from Feed the World, along with iPads purchased from the mini-grant, has provided me with classroom resources that give my students wonderful learning experiences.”

Water quality is important to all of us, and farmers are working to reduce nutrient input into natural water systems through best management practices. Your students can learn more about this topic, as well as performing labs to check water quality, with this free curriculum on our site.
