VT EPSCoR post-doc Erin Seybold and CWDD members LeeAnn Trusela, and Janel Roberge traveled to Lyman C. Hunt Middle School on February 14 2019 and led roughly 40 students through hypothesis creation and testing.
The middle school students had received visits from the CWDD the week prior, where they gained some background knowledge about macroinvertebrates. This time, students learned about land use and its impacts on macroinvertebrates. They then created hypotheses that they tested using data taken from VT EPSCoR's Streams Database.
