Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A USEPA funded project titled WaterWorks aimed at exposing careers in water and wastewater utilities to K-12 educators and students is currently in progress. WaterWorks, consists of four contemporary core K-12 educational modules titled WaterMobile, WaterTalk, WaterPal and WaterCave to excite the next generation to join our nations water/wastewater workforce. All four components are designed to excite the next generation to pursue careers related to the needs of the water/wastewater industry. There is a dire need for a new diverse workforce as the current workforce is reaching the retirement age. We are partnering with area schools, water and wastewater utilities and non-profit organizations to expose careers via hands on activities, videos, and presentations. Activities are also mapped in sync with the New Jersey Science Standards to assist educators also.
