The Project

Project Title WaterWorx
Insects To Study benthic macroinvertebrates
Project Description As Director of the Black River Action Team, I am using my WaterWorx river educational program to work with the Riverside Middle School to explore the lives, functions and classifications of aquatic insects. For the teacher's classroom, the students will work on learning how insect morphology relates to adaptation for a life on the bottom of a river. I believe they will also be looking at the way scientists classify these critters based on feeding behavior and body type.
