Students team up to study Lake Winnipeg watershed

Students from Brandon and North Dakota are teaming up to study areas within the Lake Winnipeg watershed during a two-day workshop starting Monday at Neelin high school.

The workshop, which is a part of the OPEN Water planning project, plans to combine aboriginal teachings, classroom study, field and geospatial technology to gain insight into how people, the land and water are connected.

"The Lake Winnipeg Watershed knows no boundaries. As Canada's second largest watershed it include parts of four provinces and four U.S. states and is home to more than seven million people," reads a statement from the Brandon School Division.

Once students have collected data from water samples along the river using the Collector for ArcGIS app, high school geography teacher Rob Langston said he will be showing students how to share their results online and create "storymaps."

"Nothing nourishes a lifelong understanding and concern for our environment like hands-on experience," said Joe Super, a high school science teacher from Minot, North Dakota. "Partnering with students from other schools in the watershed will be a powerful means of reinforcing the connections within the Lake Winnipeg basin."
