Reports and Documents
The purpose of the grant was to fund an effort to enhance the learning of middle school students participating in an outdoor canoeing experience, by incorporating technology into the existing Canoes on Wheels program. We investigated whether the use of technology enhanced Wisconsin youthsÂ’ understanding of key concepts of natural resources stewardship, their understanding of sustainable water management practices, and their involvement in environmentally responsible behaviors as related to watersheds and rivers. Project methods will be explained in a masterÂ’s thesis document which should be available by the summer of 2016.
