Jack Chambers PS | London, ON

Grade 8 students at Jack Chambers PS participated in The Water Docs @ School Action Project Program and made a documentary about the stormwater management pond in their school's backyard. They surveyed the school and found that few people understood the function of the pond and its relationship to the urban water cycle and the ecosystems. They decided to teach their school and community about the pond using science, creativity and passion!
