Join us for an interactive dialogue with the Emerald Project team. Together we will take a deep dive into uncovering the power of information and how we as educators can make a difference in the lives of our students. Explore with NHMU educators the science and engineering practice of obtaining and evaluating information using the topic of water and engineering surrounding this critical resource.
