An education program that delves below the surface...

Students participating in the Montana Groundwater Academy (MGA) use physical models and conduct field investigations to develop knowledge of groundwater system structure and process, and then apply their understanding to solve a real-world groundwater contamination case. The MGA program exemplifies how science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education can help prepare individuals to participate in citizen and professional activities related to managing our water resources. MGA is appropriate for integration into courses such as Earth Science and Environmental Science. To learn more, please contact Beth Covitt at beth.covitt@umontana.edu.
