Brown and Warren-Rice were among 24 Central Indiana high school teachers who participated in the field study offered by the Center for Earth and Environmental Science (CEES) to provide hands-on professional development for area teachers as part of Project Seam. Co-sponsors included the Department of Geology and the Lilly ARBOR Project.

The teachers measured the growth rate of trees and other vegetation planted on the western boundary of the IUPUI campus as part of the Lilly ARBOR Project, an ongoing White River restoration effort developed by CEES. Workshop participants also checked water quality of wells and updated GIS information on the site, in addition to attending lecture and lab classes on the IUPUI campus.
