6th Grade Scientists Learn About Our Water

 Thanks to Barbara Ellis for providing this interesting update about our 6th grade scientists:
Kat Munson with 6th grade scientists
On April 5th, 6th and 7th,  sixth graders were visited by Kat Munson of the Cumberland County Soil and Water Conservation District, as well as a representative from the Yarmouth Water District. 

The goals for the visits included students learning about their drinking water, which comes from groundwater, understanding the characteristics of North Yarmouth's drinking water, the surface-groundwater connection, and the role humans play in this system. They constructed a model that shows what happens when pollutants introduced at the surface make their way into the groundwater.  It was a wonderful, educational , hands-on learning experience for our budding young scientists!
