On Friday the 6th October 2017, graduate students from G360 Institute for Groundwater Research did a 75 min workshop with the grade 12 students at Guelph Collegiate Vocational Institute (GCVI). The class (~15 students) was a combined Environmental Resource Management course and an Environmental Systems and Societies course. The workshop involved a brief overview presentation on groundwater and some demonstrations with Guelph area rock core and an aquifer tank.
On Wednesday August 20th, 2017, graduate students from the G360 Institute for Groundwater Research participated in the Let’s Talk Science High-School Open House at the University of Guelph. The G360 booth included rock core obtained from the local bedrock aquifer used for the City of Guelph and surrounding communities’ water supplies and a bench-scale hydrogeologic model for visualization of groundwater flow. Over 20 members of the public visited the display and it was very well received.
