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! Rochester local media came to interview what have done with the beach and water of Lake ontario and how does it impact to education and local community.

The data we collected and recorded are very valuable for the rest of study.

Wind-Bacteria, pH, Water temperature and human litters

Earth-Bacteria, Water temperature, pH, Alkalinity, hardness

Water-Bacteria and Water temperature

After lunch time, the wind team has done a team interview to pedestrians of the water quality. They have learned a lot during talking to others. And they also collected human litters to do something real for protection of our beach.

Group chants are the final competition. It is amazing to see how we built relationship with amazing scientists in a short time. We are looking to more collaborative work between campers and embrace our data analysis day!!
