Benthic Macroinvertebrate STEM resources.

BMIs are indicators of water quality health. Plus they move around a lot! BMI are interesting for all grade levels.

Stream Discharge STEM resources.

Students measure stream speed across a transect, then calculate discharge. Some students enter the stream. Best for secondary students.

Stream Erosion STEM resources.

Erosion creates sediment and nutrient loading in our river. This parameter is great for all ages, and can be used to connect human land use with all the other parameters.
