This class is designed for 6th graders and up. Students will be placed in a laboratory setting to test the quality of water from various sources located on the Ashokan campus. By making observations and analyzing these samples, students will learn about the natural processes that take place in purifying water. Students will participate in activities including our new Augmented Reality (AR) Sandbox for creating watershed models, as well as our digital microscope to peer into the unseen world. This approach will allow students to have a unique hands-on experience in exploring the macro and micro world which surrounds us all while gaining an understanding/appreciation for accessible drinking water.
