Water Science Mentors

Machine Science is facilitating the participation of Boston Public Schools (BPS) in an innovative, three-state (AZ, PA, and MA) Water SCIENCE program (i.e., Supporting Collaborative Inquiry, Engineering and Career Exploration with Water), funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and managed through Concord Consortium: http://concord.org/projects/water-science. Critical to the success of the program is the mentorship of middle school students by water enthusiasts of all sorts, from environmental justice workers to water quality testers.
