In this iteration of our exploration of Educational Technology and Design Thinking, we focus on how learning works by looking at systems that create pollution and disrupted environments in the Hudson River. We work with the Baykeeper of New York and New Jersey to learn about different kinds of pollution and ways to remediate problems. We practice effective communication and collaboration skills and our generative thinking abilities about the ill-structured problems of citizen science and community activism.
