Summary

Our DILOS STEM program is an education initiative that focuses on providing workshops for a hands-on experience in conducting water pollution research using mobile water laboratory. This project plans involvement of 3 schools in Florida for 1250 school students. Our aim is to inspire young people to pursue careers in STEM fields and show students that their actions could make a difference in building a healthier environment for themselves and future generations.

Challenge

Increasing population and accompanying environmental stress associated with growth is degrading water resources in Florida. Surprisingly, the only source of fresh drinking water in South Florida is not being monitored for toxic chemicals. With water resources getting affected due to climate change and other man-made polluting activities, we need a large number of students in STEM fields, who are better prepared to tackle these issues.

Solution

Our Education Team has developed the DILOS program based on STEM-centered instruction which provides hands-on educational activities to the middle and high school students in Florida, via field trips to local rivers, lakes, or waterways. Students use scientific methods in collecting data, making observations, and testing water samples using our mobile water laboratory. Later, students may become members of the AquaSquad for continuing water education and participation in local projects.

Long-Term Impact

DILOS program will help future generations become educated on water issues, and help them to be part of the solution for the protection of water resources. AquaSquad members including students, teachers, scientists, and concerned volunteers from all over the world take up environmental causes by adopting local waterways, monitoring environmental conditions, and helping us work towards our vision of clean, healthy water for all people.
