What PBE principles were highlighted in this project?
Students went out to rivers, lakes, and streams in the upper valley and captured dragonfly samples that were sent to a lab affiliated with Dartmouth College in order to analyze the mercury concentration in local water sources. Students generated research questions and identified bodies of water they wanted to explore. They analyzed the data from Dartmouth in real time and made comparisons to other bodies of water locally and in other areas.
