    The Pilot School has successfully launched a sensor station! The acquisition of the water monitoring system was facilitated by a grant from the Stroud Water Research Center in conjunction with the EPA. On September 6, right before a rain, the data logger began recording the amount of water in the retention pond just beyond our parking lot. After analyzing data, students quickly realized that the water from the rain is being absorbed into the ground rather than flowing directly into the creek. This led students to begin asking questions about the importance of this pond and the effect on the environment.

    • That is AWESOME Trish! David and Shannon are headed to our school on Monday to install our sensor! We are so psyched!- @ Montgomery School, Chester Springs, PA
