Mathisen, Paul P.
There is a need to increase awareness and better educate the public, particularly youth, regarding the issues with stormwater runoff. The goal of this project was to find ways to implement a watershed curriculum that would increase awareness of 5th grade students, and make recommendations on professional development programs for teachers. This goal was accomplished through interviews and surveys for school coordinators, teachers, and directors of schools in Massachusetts to find the best way to successfully implement this curriculum. The recommendations addressed the presentability and provided assistance for the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, Central Massachusetts Regional Stormwater Coalition, and 5th grade teachers in Massachusetts.
