|The Energy Net Interns are teaching the students how to read a topographic map|
Before exploring the Four Mile Watershed on foot, the students and Energy Net Interns looked at a topographic map of the area. The students learned how to read topographic maps and to identify where the Carnegie Museum is in the watershed. Teens learned to identify features like valleys, ridges, and hilltops. We then went for a walk to to find these features outside.
|Students taking notes on a bridge in Schenley Park|
We walked over to the bridge across Neville Street to explore a part of the Four Mile watershed. The teens took notes explaining any unique features the found in the watershed. We went back to the museum to compiled their notes and form one big list of what makes our watershed unique. This list of features includes some things we might want to incorporate into our model of the Four Mile watershed.
