WOW lessons are designed for infusion into the existing science curriculums for college freshmen and advanced high school students. The lessons use the aquatic environment and real lake data to explore basic science concepts through two different approaches: a directed study ("Studying") and an inquiry ("Investigating") approach.

I viewed the Data Interpretation Lesson which can be adapted for use in biology courses outside of water management. It appears an effective lesson for getting students to think about, analyze, and manipulate data to solve a problem, a core skill for any discipline.

Technical Remarks:

It does appear as if the editors are updating and keeping information current.
