Slideshow: Cool topic for first ‘Eco U’ water camp
Nothing puts the “reality” into science camp quite like sampling a creek in 100 degree heat, standing in a huge expanse of an invasive reed species (Phragmites) towering overhead, exploring the evolutions of sand dunes on a Lake Michigan beach, running samples in the lab, or getting an insider’s tour of a wastewater treatment plant. These are just some of the experiences 15 high school students packed into three days of Eco-U: Water Reality Science Camp. Among the UW-Green Bay people mentioned in our feature story are Kevin Fermanich, Patrick Forsythe, Mike Zorn, Matt Dornbush, John Katers and Laurie Case. See slideshow.
