    The WELL (Water and Energy Learning Lab) Project is a science grant operated by the Springfield School District since 1998 and funded annually by the Springfield Utility Board. The grant supports hands-on instruction in the areas of water and energy science. Support comes in the form of teacher training workshops, development and implementation of new curriculum materials, assisting with classroom instruction, organizing and providing instructional support for fieldtrips, funding for materials and equipment for science projects and recruiting, training and supervising the middle school and high school advanced water teams.

    The program focuses on enhancing science education in our school district, and offers students opportunities to conduct field research and monitoring in local watersheds.
