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 H2Know Lake Erie digital case study is published by the Nutrients for Life Foundation, an education non-profit that grows understanding for the vital role fertilizers play in sustaining a growing population. To connect with a Nutrients for Life Foundation representative who can support teachers with the content, contact us.
The H2Know educational content is supported by the International Plant Nutrition Institute, Nutrients for Life Canada, The Nature Conservancy, Ohio Agribusiness Association and The Fertilizer Institute. The following partners supported the H2Know Lake Erie case study development through funding:
