Project Rivers is a project that has already been started on STEM~Net. Eugene Vaters Collegiate wishes to be part of this project. The project will allow Vaters to take "ownership" of a section of Leary's Brook. This is a portion of the Rennie's Mill water system. Vaters will be responsible for the collection of data about their section of the water system. This data will mostly be scientific but will include, also, historical and other forms of data where appropriate. The data can be anything from water analysis to digitized video. The limitation will be the equipment that Vaters can obtain or borrow from other sources.
The goals of the project are broad since we wish to involve as much of the
school as possible. It is the aim of Vaters to involve a variety of school
subject areas and as many grade levels as possible.
