Program Description


Students entering grades 4-6 in the Fall 2022, join Kristin Quell-Garguilo to learn about pollution in the ocean through experimentation. They will simulate the problems associated with water salable chemical, hydrophobic chemical, and physical pollution. They will have the opportunity to test for changes in salinity and pH of the water quality. Participants will be given a chance to predict the effects of these pollutants on the ocean and its inhabitants and then try different clean up methods to see what works best. Come learn about the challenges our ocean faces and how we can make a difference!
