Model My Watershed

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud Water Research Center educators and scientists launched Model My Watershed, an innovative, three-year program to develop, test, and disseminate a watershed-modeling tool set for Philadelphia-area secondary schools. The goal of the program is to engage and excite students about the diverse science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers needed to address environmental issues. Using an interactive, hydrologic modeling tool set, students make real-world decisions based on real scientific data and models and learn to predict how environmental changes in their watersheds affect the hydrologic cycle.
