Watershed Science: Working with biogeochemical data in a first-year undergraduate seminar. part of Cutting Edge:Data, Simulations and Models:Workshop 03:Activities
This is a first-year college course on water and N cycling that involves four active-learning projects utilizing datasets collected by the students and taken from published sources. It teaches fundamental scientific principles (application of mass balance equations to study natural systems) as well as effective communication skills (preparing figures/tables, writing persuasively). The students prepare a complete scientific report at the end of each project.
