Beginning in August 2021 we launched a multi-month project-based learning experience with ~800 high school students and ~18 teachers in Southern California and California's Central Valley. Alongside local & national experts, they will study the extensive natural & built water infrastructure currently under stress in California, and along the entire West Coast of North America. Eight SDGs are in focus as students marshal real-time STEM data on water access, water quality, water treatment, water scarcity, water conservation, and water power (hydropower). As emerging California leaders, caregivers, and citizens, they will mobilize to share their collected data and knowledge with their local community, including their families.
