The WELL Project 

Supporting Science Instruction Through Environmental Inquiry at Springfield Public Schools

 The WELL Project (Water and Energy Learning Lab) is a science grant operated by the Springfield School District since 1998, and funded annually by the Springfield Utility Board

The WELL Project supports hand-on instruction in the areas of water and energy science.  Support comes in the form of development and implementation of new curriculum materials, assisting with classroom instruction, organizing and providing instructional support for field trips, funding for materials and equipment for science projects, and recruiting, training and supervising the middle school and high school advanced water teams.  The program focuses on supporting the delivery of science education in our district and  offering students opportunities to conduct field research and monitoring in local watersheds. 

The WELL Project has a FREE Community Well Water Testing Program

The WELL Project's Advanced Water Team Program offers hands-on environmental monitoring community service projects at two high schools and four middle schools at SPS.
