“From H-2-O” is a teacher workshop developed to train participants to use water sampling and educational strategies to educate students about water quality and related issues within the Barataria-Terrebonne Estuary System.

Collaborating with LUMCON’s Bayouside Classroom water monitoring program the activities serve as the platform for connecting students to their local environment and the Gulf of Mexico through routine water sampling and data reporting. Bayouside Classroom is LUMCON’s ongoing student-based water monitoring program. All data collected by students is entered onto the Bayouside Classroom database, which can be viewed and used by anyone with an Internet connection.

“From H-2-O” is designed to allow teachers, informal educators, and scientists to work together to build a community that will foster scientific thinking and environmental stewardship within Louisiana.
