Student Watershed Watch - Student Summit

More than 150 students and their teachers met at the University of Toledo Scott Park Campus for the annual Student Watershed Watch Summit on Thursday, November 10. They presented results of their water quality testing research and explored careers in environmental science. This is the 27th year for the program.

The keynote speaker was Laura Schetter, an environmental educator at the Natural Science Technology Center, a Toledo Public School. She is a world traveler who is collecting “water stories” and sharing them in a project she has created. H2yOu is a geographic literacy water project. It uses storytelling to connect people all over the world to water and to each other.

Ryan Wichman, a meteorologist from WTOL, was the master of ceremonies. He talked about his career in meteorology and inspired students to pursue science careers.

The Student Watershed Watch is supported by local sponsors including the City of Toledo, Lucas County, BP Husky Refining, First Solar, GM, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles with additional support from Lucas Soil and Water Conservation District, Earth Force, Toledo Zoo, University of Toledo, and WTOL.
