CPED 201 - Thirsty for Change? A hands-on, immersive class on local water quality (4 Cr.)


Do you know where your water comes from? Do you know if it is safe to drink or for animals to live in? Do you know how water is monitored and tested to ensure it is safe or clean water? Water is essential to life, and clean water is vital for any thriving community or ecosystem. Unfortunately, clean water is not guaranteed, especially in congested, urban areas. As concerning as this is, there is something you can do about it (yes, you)! This course will empower you to learn about water systems and sources and provide you with the tools to affect positive change. You will learn about water quality and water challenges facing Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay that has been caused by human activity. You will learn how water is monitored and tested, and gain hands-on experience testing water. With that knowledge, you will work in teams on a final project to identify a specific water quality problem, apply the scientific process to develop water testing kit and compose a grant proposal enabling local citizens to implement your kit and foster a healthier environment. I will give you feedback on your grant proposals as part of your course grade, and encourage students to submit strong proposals for external funding. You can make a difference and this course will give you the tools to do so!  Please note, this course includes mandatory field trips and field work. Restricted to first-year and sophomore students or others with instructor permission.
