'Water Activities for Students Exploration'

Macroinvertebrates are animals without a backbone that can be seen without magnification. Mostly aquatic insects, this category can also include worms and crustaceans. We will conduct a short analysis of water chemistry since some macro invertebrates can live in unhealthy water and others require a cleaner aquatic environment. We will then sort and categorize these animals based on their need for clean water. Finally, we will predict if their home is a forest, farm or factory. Door prizes of water testing kits and a macro mayhem activity set will be offered.

Mini-Workshop Session (activity should be easily demonstrated in 20 minutes and will be repeated 3 times on Friday)
