Description

The CLEAN WATER program at Florida Gulf Coast University is an outreach experience that integrates engineering entrepreneurship and regional water quality issues into elementary and middle school classrooms. Coordinated by the U. A. Whitaker College of Engineering and supported by a grant from the EPA, the program combines hands-on classroom activities, physical and virtual field trips and a culminating engineering entrepreneurship challenge on the university campus. Classroom activities include physical models, laboratory testing and analysis, interactive lesson plans, computer simulations, and team based project learning assignments. This paper will discuss the various components of the program as well as provide results of student assessment. Participant feedback will be included along with a discussion on the future direction of the program.
