2020 Science Teacher Academy

February 10th, 2020

The Watershed Science Teacher Academy is a research-based partnership with Princeton University that offers an invaluable experience for educators teaching kindergarten through high school. Learn from field-based experiments and data collection with scientists in environmental science and engineering to implement the Next Generation Science Standards into your curriculum.

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and restoring water in central New Jersey. We immerse teachers in environmental investigations of water quality and strategies to mitigate the problems of polluted stormwater runoff.
