If you are looking for a good science fair project idea or perhaps an idea to do with your Girl Scout or Boy Scout troop, check out World Water Monitoring Day!
“Green” projects are all the rage these days at science fairs. Monitoring the water quality of a local stream or pond near you is a great way to jump into the world of environmental science. This website collects data from students all over the world who are collecting data in their area. So your data becomes part of an actual international project! They have kits you can order, instructions, background info….basically everything you could need to get started. (Note to Parental Units: this means less science fair stress!) It’s a great source of inspiration for science fair project ideas as well. This gets kids experience with field work as well as lab work so it’s a great opportunity for kids who want to a career in environmental science one day.
Enjoy and I hope you all are enjoying your last days of summer or having a successful start to the school year!
