WyCEHG Co-PI, Dr. Scott Miller will introduce a group of Laramie grade school children to hydrology.
October 16, 2012 - Part of being an EPSCoR researcher is working with students of all ages. This month, Dr. Scott Miller, co Principal Investigator on the WyCEHG (Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics) EPSCoR grant, will be hard at work teaching Laramie 3rd and 4th graders about the science in the community. The Laramie River and Greenbelt provide an excellent location for learning about ecological restoration, drought, water chemistry and the relationship among water, animals and humans. Dr. Miller will work with local teachers to develop teaching tools to show students how human activities interact with the river and why it is important to take care of our environment. Throughout the year WyCEHG researchers will be working with schools in the Laramie community as they work on their research into Wyoming’s water.
