Day 2-Getting fame

Today we continued our exciting, fun and tired work about our water quality study.

An energizer-hoora game activated students to keep energy going.

We started with some review of last day’s work and formulate an investigable question after group discussions.

Then campers went to the beach with scientific tools and equipments to continue collecting data for a refined investigation. What special today is our program is getting fame!

Water Issues in China

I sit in front of my computer screen and reflect my experience these weeks in this course, a word buzzed in my mind “water issues”. We have been through the investigation process in course project to address local Rochester water issues.
