Science Rocks! Water Quality Monitoring using the Hydrolab
Join local Danbury teacher Thomas DeHaas for “Science Rocks!,” a youth program that encourages a better understanding of science, throughout the summer!
Water Quality Monitoring using the Hydrolab – 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.
