Hydrofiles offers training, field trip support, and water test kits for Austin area high school aquatic science and environmental science classes.
The primary focus of hydrofiles is collecting water quality data from the Austin creek closest to the school, analyzing trends in the data, and determining impacts to the creek. Lab materials for the lessons, chemical water quality tests and field trips for collecting creek data are provided by the City of Austin. Additional opportunities include caving into the Edwards Aquifer. All content is focused on scientific research and problem solving and is correlated to the TEKS.
