Brigham's Downstream / Upstream project receives IonE mini grant

Jonee Kulman Brigham (CSBR) has been awarded a mini grant from the Institute on the Environment for her work "Art, Story and Infrastructure: A Model for Experiential Interconnection in Environmental Education." The proposal gathers an interdisciplinary team of University faculty and community partners to develop a curriculum model based on the Downstream/Upstream demonstration project. The topic will focus on how to use place-based interaction with infrastructure, interpreted through art, story, and science to create an experiential
and informed sense of interconnection between our points of resource use and the engineering and natural systems through which they flow. The project specifically addresses developing an urban water cycle curriculum model for preK-12 students.
