Maine Math and Science Alliance(MMSA) is putting out a report on community-based environmental learning that will include a case study of Messalonskee Middle School’s “Power Plants,” a project that works to improve water quality through student-designed floating islands.
Last year, science teacher Amanda Ripa filled out a survey concerning how she integrates environmental learning into her science classes. She was chosen as a case study for the report, gave an in-person interview last summer, and presented the “Power Plants” project at the MMSA conference this past fall.
You can read the full Power Plants case study here. It really highlights the amazing work that Amanda does with her students and the many benefits that they get from these projects.
