Curricula

Advanced Curricula (post-secondary)

Grades K-12 Curricula and Outreach Exercises

  • Governor’s Institutes of Vermont Earth Systems Contamination project (YouTube)
    • High schoolers experiment with the effects of hydro-fracking on a nearby river

Public Outreach and Education; River Management

  • Vermont Rivers and Roads Program
    • The Vermont Agencies of Natural Resources, in partnership with the Vermont Agency of Transportation, developed the Rivers and Roads Program in which they use the Emriver Em2 geomodel to explain how rivers work, and how to design, construct, and maintain roads and bridges to create greater river stability and more flood-resilient transportation infrastructure. Case Study summary.

  • Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation Watershed Management Division gives a demonstration to the Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission
  • The Watershed Stewardship Center at West Creek Reservation, part of Cleveland Metroparks, uses an Em2 to teach the public about enhancing and protecting urban watersheds.
