SEPA Project Promotes Data Literacy, Increasing Private Well Water Testing for As

SEPA project “Data to Action: A Secondary School-Based Citizen Science Project to Address Arsenic Contamination of Well Water” is aimed at promoting both data literacy and increasing rates of private well water testing for Arsenic in participating communities. Funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), it is being implemented by Dartmouth SRP in partnership with the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory.  Bruce Stanton (Project 3 Leader) is a co-PI. SRP researcher Kate Buckman is the project’s NH school coordinator.
