You do not have to wait for high school to take hands-on classes such as Exploring Environment and Natural Resources! Just as Samantha Hoggard's seventh graders at Riverside Middle School. This morning students used a standard water monitoring kit to test water samples from the water fountain, the workroom sink, the Roanoke River, and the Pamlico River. The samples were tested for dissolved oxygen, pH, turbidity, phosphate, and nitrate. They have been learning about water quality and pollution so this was a hands-on opportunity to analyze local water sources and our drinking water. #dreambig #explorenow
