- Virtual Tour Opportunity: Combining Data & Art, Featuring Project EDDIE's Catherine O’Reilly
If you are looking for something different for your classes, The Canary in the Lake, an art exhibition that includes data from lake research incorporated into the artwork is open virtually from March 4 - May 16. The project is a collaboration between artist Alice Hargrave and aquatic ecologist Catherine O'Reilly, showcasing the individuality of lakes as well as the broad range of issues that they face. You can take advantage of the virtual tours and/or have a class visit by Alice or Catherine. Reading lists are available, with a scientific paper for each lake, often the one from which the data were taken. Learn more...

Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry and Exploration) is a suite of education projects composed of STEM disciplinary and educational researchers. We develop flexible classroom teaching modules using large, publicly available datasets to engage students in STEM and improve their quantitative reasoning. Teaching modules span topics such as ecology, limnology, geology, hydrology, and environmental sciences. EDDIE also helps build the associated professional development needed to ensure effective use of the teaching modules.
