The objective is to bring scientific research and inquiry into classrooms. Together the fellows, teachers and students investigate the natural world.

This is the third year of a five-year project funded by a $2.7 million grant from the National Science Foundation.

The Partners in Discovery GK-12 Project focuses on the implications of growth and change on the Columbia River and its watershed.

Existing curricula is built upon and supplemented with inquiry-based activities and lessons specifically related to the Columbia River Watershed.

Everything the WSU Vancouver fellows bring into the classrooms aligns with both Washington state and national science standards.
