Water Investigations Program

The inquiry process is the process scientists use to think critically and problem solve effectively. The Water Investigation Program (WIP) is a program conceived to develop these essential critical thinking and problem solving skills that enable youth to grow into informed citizens engaged in their society. This program offers a chance to experience a riparian area in this arid to semi-arid state. An opportunity to investigate your own questions. Students design their own testable questions and a scientific process to answer that question implemented when they visit a riparian preserve.
