Water Quality Science and Monitoring
Inside Education has teamed up with a lab in the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta along with financial support from Alberta Innovates to create a school-based program that educates about Alberta’s watersheds and gives students the opportunity to use leading-edge technology to assist in monitoring their own local water bodies for biological issues.
- Request a classroom program where Inside Education will lead the class through an interactive presentation including DNA extraction and use of a portable monitoring device to identify biological hazards in the water.
Themes: watersheds, water monitoring, aquatic biodiversity, aquatic invasive species, connections between science and technology to the healthy people and healthy watersheds, DNA, citizen science, water use, biological contamination
- Biology 20: Ecosystems & Population Change
