Student Summit is a Huge Success

On Wednesday, May 22, nine of the 19 teachers who did water quality testing with their students attended the GREEN Student Summit.  There were 300 students in attendance at Kettering University.

Students presented their water quality test results.  Eight different presentations from professional people in the science and environmental world were going on throughout the day as well. 

Students got to experience a science conference.  They were exposed to topics including benthic monitoring, the difference between storm drains and sewer systems, PFAS, recycling, ways to reduce your carbon footprint, and how an art teacher did the Salmon in the Classroom program with his students.
