New! RiverQuest – "Testing the Waters"

Explore water chemistry onboard RiverQuest EXPLORER at dock. This 45-minute session looks at earth’s most precious resource, fresh water, and considers the point and nonpoint sources of pollution that can affect it here in southwestern Pennsylvania, and how these have changed over time. Students test water samples for indicators of water quality, from physical indicators like temperature and turbidity to chemical parameters such as pH, dissolved oxygen and salinity. Students consider the potential impacts to freshwater ecology and biodiversity.

Science and technology topics include:
Chemistry, Environment / Ecology / Biodiversity, and Research

Capacity: 35
