Educators & Citizen Scientists
Welcome to the Source to Tap Educators and Citizen Scientists portal.
Source to Tap established a structured citizen science programme that encouraged people to get involved in proactively protecting and improving water quality in source drinking water catchments. The project also engaged the public in the development of a community-led vision for the future of their local rivers and action planning for catchment-scale water quality protection.
Teachers and Educators
Source to Tap has produced a free-to-use 5-unit education programme, packed with resources, activities, and experiments, designed to help your pupils learn and understand more about the world around them.
As the units are self-guiding, they are suitable for home learning as well as in a classroom setting and can be enjoyed by children and adults alike!
Citizen Scientist and Volunteer Coordinators
Source to Tap has developed a series of free ‘How-to’ guides to help you plan and coordinate a citizen science programme aimed at encouraging volunteers to monitor water quality using river flies as indicator species.
Source to Tap has helped educate 1947 school children in the Erne and Derg catchment areas through school visits and online learning. Our educational material is based on applied lessons and teacher, pupil and volunteer feedback.
