Riverview High School in Sarasota, FL

Students at Riverview High School, an International Baccalaureate school in Sarasota, Florida is a GLOBE school with a tidal creek on campus. The grant will enable observations with a Vernier probewear kit and a turbidity tube (GLOBE does not presently accept turbidity/transparency data from probe wear). Students will add water measurements to their already active monitoring of the environment. The school is adding an inquiry-based class to its offerings and allowing the teachers to structure the class to emphasize inquiry. The students will do research projects investigating the local tidal creek and submit them to GLOBE science symposia.
