Students present at Water Monitoring Council Conference

Last Updated on Jan 3, 2018 at 2:43pm | Northern Garrett High School

Northern Garrett High School juniors McKenna Houser and Hailey Moore presented a poster entitled “Fingerprinting Sources of Nitrogen Pollution on Schoolyards in Western Maryland” at the Maryland Water Monitoring Council (MWMC) 23rd Annual Conference held at the Maritime Conference Center in North Linthicum on December 8, 2017.
 
The poster described a project in which the girls are involved through their Advanced Placement (AP) environmental science class called the Student, Teacher and Researcher (STAR) Nitrate Investigation, funded by NOAA-BWET. Environmental science classes in Garrett, Allegany, and Washington County participate in this local scientific investigation in collaboration with University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science Appalachian Laboratory (UMCES-AL) scientists. With guidance from scientists and teachers, students worked in small groups to collect precipitation and runoff samples and answer research questions. They then discuss their findings with scientists to understand the role of western Maryland schools in nitrate pollution.
 
The STAR program has been in operation for three years. The girls presented data collected during year two. The MWMC student poster contest is open to high school and college undergraduate students. Houser and Moore where the only high school participants.
