Join us on Aug. 7 at 2 p.m. for our Science Rocks! Series: “Water Quality Monitoring using the Hydrolab” located on the Pavilion West Deck. This program is geared for children ages 6-12.
Participants will learn about different data points such as pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, turbidity, etc. in order to better understand the quality of local water sources. A Hydrolab will be used as a part of the Sea Grant and EPA loaner program which will allow participants to take actual water samples from Lake Erie in order to study the above mentioned data points. We will also discuss and facilitate the usage of a Sekki disk as another tool/method used for studying current water quality. Participants will even be able to make their own miniature Sekki disk to take home with them at the end of the session.
