About the Project
The H2Know digital case study brings the science of water quality challenges to the classroom for discovery. While the case study focuses on Lake Erie, harmful algal blooms (HABs) threaten bodies of water in more than 100 countries around the world. The H2Know content is designed for high school students and fulfills Next Generation Science Standards and science education standards.
H2Know is designed to bring the challenges, solutions, science and research related to our vital water resources to the classroom.
The Canadian H2Know Lake Erie digital case study was developed by Nutrients for Life Foundation Canada with permission from Nutrients for Life Foundation (US Foundation). Nutrients for Life Foundation Canada is a registered charitable organization committed to bringing educational materials to the classroom, focusing on soil science and agricultural sustainability. To connect with a Nutrients for Life Regional Managers who can support teachers with the content, contact us.
The H2Know education content was supported by Nutrients for Life Foundation USA. In the original development it was supported by the International Plant Nutrition Institute, The Nature Conservancy, Ohio Agricbusiness Association and the Fertilizer Institute.
We would to thank the Ontario Agribusiness Association for supporting this digital case study.
A special thank you to the experts who participated in the H2Know case study:
Start by discovering an issue that led to a water ban impacting more than 400,000 residents in Toledo, Ohio, in 2014.
Is Lake Erie the perfect environment for algae? Learn about its limnological characteristics and the history of this issue.
