"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water" ~ Loren Eiseley, American Anthropologist and Natural Science Writer


Critical thinking skills and metacognition allow students to gain a comprehensive understanding of Earth’s water resources including the chemical and physical properties of water and the water cycle.  Students are actively engaged in the study of hydrology including both surface water (lakes, rivers, streams, atmosphere) and subsurface water (soils, capillary, ground water) sources.  Problem-solving teams use quantitative measurements to determine sustainable indices and obtain work place skills by gathering and disseminating data, examining the history of water policy and law, allocation of water resources and water management issues.
