RiverQuest

Field Trip:
Environmental Science on the Three Rivers 

Students explore and engage with Pittsburgh's three rivers by applying scientific principles. They'll analyze living and nonliving indicators of water quality and correlate results with industrial history, historical and current land use. The process serves as a springboard for exploring issues of sustainability and green design! 

Applicable for grades 4 -12; includes in classroom use of the Science Captain's Resource Chest.
