Using an online groundwater simulation developed by engineering educators and civil engineering faculty at UIUC, high school students create computational models after exploring the effects of human activity and drought on an aquifer. In a series of lessons aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, students collect and analyze data, communicate scientific information, and develop an understanding of core Earth Science content. These lessons provide an example of how to formatively assess students while integrating engineering into the science classroom. Participants will receive the lesson plan overview as well as access to the simulation and full curriculum.
