Educational Outreach


A major component of BMAP is interaction with students and teachers. During the past 15 years, BMAP principal investigators have placed a strong emphasis on involving students in monitoring activities. These activities are in support of the overall mission of BMAP (e.g., community and habitat evaluations of reference watersheds and goose roundups for contamination assays) or involve specialized studies to address particular research aspects of the broader monitoring effort (e.g., snail movement studies and fingernail clam assays). By involving students, BMAP staff can provide a rich environmental, educational experience while conducting desired monitoring at lower cost. The breadth of student involvement goes from high school to post-graduate, over a single day to several years. High school students have participated through the Department of Energy's DOE Honors Program and the Appalachian Regional Commission. High school teachers from throughout the country often participate in summer research projects as a means of expanding their course curriculum at schools. University students participate in a variety of undergraduate summer programs, co-op work programs, and research for college credit. Graduate efforts have included students working on Masters and PhD projects at area universities and post-graduate appointments. Although much of the educational effort is focused at the ORNL, BMAP staff make a point to extend their efforts to site visits to local schools and involvement with volunteer environmental groups. The added effort is rewarding to both students and BMAP staff.
