My name is Keith Piccard . I am a middle school science teacher for Allendale Public Schools as well as a senior adjunct biology professor for Grand Valley State University . My undergraduate studies were in the field of biology and have also earned my Masters of Education in Biology with a focus in aquatic ecology. My experience planning and implementing lessons and laboratories in the field of biology and ecology, as well as teaching a large student body, has prepared me be able to organize and conduct a wide range of interpretive programs, lessons, lectures, activities, and special events to help promote environmental / science education. Helping a people and community to understand processes involved in biology while learning and growing academically, instills within them a passion for the field of science. It is a wonderful gift. I love watching students of any age when they make a new connection or discovery. This is a completely inspiring experience. It motivates me in my career. Over the course of my career, I have created the RAIL Project . The RAIL Project is an award winning comprehensive K-12 curriculum that gets students out of the classroom and outside exploring and learning about nature with hands-on inquiry-based research projects and then allows students to share their results with the scientific community . One major part of this project is the use of aquatic macroinvertebrates. Aquatic macroinvertebrates are such an interesting way to bring a hands-on inquiry-based activity into any classroom by letting your student gain an insight into concepts and processes that occur within the mysterious world of a stream ecosystem. Just recently, with the help of Bizstream , to go a step further in making these aquatic invertebrates accessible to anyone who is curious about their water (thinking of the Flint Water Crisis and the Wolverine Worldwide PFAS concerns) I have created the RAIL Project App . The RAIL Project App is an online database to help anyone who can gain access water identify the aquatic invertebrates they see, upload that data, and then get a comprehensive report on the stream ecosystem attributes and water quality index score of that aquatic system.
