River Camp’s week-long curriculum, titled “When Rivers Move,” was collaboratively developed by Doug Edmonds (DEAS) and Co-PI Meredith Park-Rogers (Associate Professor, School of Education). They worked closely with a team of Earth Science and Science Education PhD students at Indiana University, including Qiu Zhang and Esther Kataate Namakula from the School of Education, as well as Harrison Martin, a recently graduated DEAS PhD student, and Jake Gearon, a current DEAS PhD student. Aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards, this curriculum not only imparts scientific concepts and facts but also emphasizes the application of scientific thinking in students’ everyday lives. A total of 26 campers (5 from diverse backgrounds) participated in the 2023 event.
