STEM Exploration - Think Like a Scientist!

Students will learn to think like a scientist while exploring the different characteristics researchers look at when testing water quality. Using the different tools and techniques that scientists use to measure salinity, temperature, turbidity, specific gravity and pH, students will test the water quality here at the Mission Bay Aquatic Center, and will paddle as a group to compare results from testing at various locations on the bay.  After this course students will have experience collecting, recording and visualizing data as part of their own mini research project.
