Towards a Campus Garden – Students analyze soils for quality: An invitation to view/review student work – Environmental Chemistry Laboratory Course

Dear Colleague:

For the past month, environmental science majors including leaders of the GC Garden Club, have collaboratively developed a soil evaluation project to identify the quality of soils towards developing a Campus Garden (http://www.gcsunade.com/2013/04/11/gc-gardening-club-narrows-down-prospective-plots/). They have identified sites and analyzed soils from these sites towards determining a possible location(s) of the campus garden. This project is the second of two lab inquiry exercises that environmental science students have undertake this term in Environmental Chemistry laboratory (CHEM 3400 Lab).

You and/or your students are cordially invited to come to The LIBRARY ATRIUM to view/evaluate the student’s poster presentations between 2:30-4:00 PM on WEDNESDAY, April 24.

Please let me know by YES/NO if you can attend or if you will send your students (grad/undergrad).

I hope to assign 2 projects per person for evaluation.

Either way, the students really enjoy your feedback as you interact briefly with their 10 teams.

Many thanks and looking forward to hearing from you.
