In late September, Grade 6 students spent the day at Stamford's Cove Island Park for their first installment of the SoundWaters "Watershed Science Experience" - a cornerstone of the Grade 6 Science program. Students engage in meaningful watershed science experiences throughout the year. Through this intensive program students become stewards of Stamford's watershed system by participating in hands-on analysis and assessment of water quality in upland and coastal sites within the Long Island Sound watershed.
This program also utilizes the resources in our community and takes traditional learning out of the classroom. The SoundWaters collaborative provides a positive, successful experience in developing team-building skills and learning to work together in groups. The SoundWaters program will continue throughout the year with several upcoming visits planned.
