LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) - Master's students studying elementary education at Eastern Oregon University will present a series of science-learning centers to 103 elementary school children Friday, Feb. 19.
The learning center event dubbed "Project Wet" delves into the importance of healthy watersheds. Land erosion, rain runoff, wildlife, natural filtration systems and water conservation stations will engage participants on a kid-friendly level.
EOU students in the Master of Arts in Teaching program designed the integrated curriculum experience and will teach children the concepts presented at each station. This is the third watershed event of its kind Eastern has organized and the program has grown exponentially each time. Classes from Central and Island City elementary schools will participate this year.
Activities are scheduled from 8 to 11:15 a.m. in the Hoke Union Building, Room 309 and in the Hoke Main Lounge at EOU.
