Educators get field-based experience at Lake Waco Wetlands


Central Texas teachers, along with Baylor University scientists, are studying water at the Lake Waco Wetlands. 

The Environmental Protection Agency is funding this workshop with a $91,000 grant.

The goal is to get teachers out of classrooms and into a field. 

Professor Suzanne Nesmith, Ph.D says area teachers can now apply for sub-grants to help fund science projects thanks to this grant.

“If we are not able to have teachers understanding this, then we’re not going to have our children [understanding] this. And they are the future,” Nesmith says.

The university is also contributing with $30,000.

Twenty teachers teaching grades 4 till 12 are part of this.

They come from 14 area schools and one private school.
