What’s in my Water?

A group of Year 9 students were able to take part in some citizen science with the “What’s in My Water?” Project from Groundwork. The students went out to the River Aire to take samples of the river water, before taking the samples back to the lab to analyse them with a variety of specialist techniques and equipment. Students enjoyed learning about the different sources of contamination and considering what could be done about them, along with the chance to collect real-life samples and use advanced techniques to explain the science behind the headlines.
