The purpose of this activity is for us to compare the water of Bayou St. John to the Mississippi River water
Ph paper, turbidity tube, salinity probe, and micro-plastics filter, stereoscope, digital monitor, and test tubes
Collect the water from our local water biomes
Use our scientific instruments to determine the amount of micro plastics, turbidity, salinity, and Ph of both of our water sources.
Compare our results in both experiments to see which water biome is cleaner.
This experiment will help us determine which water biome is cleaner. With these results, we can become more aware of what is in the local water sources. We can also use these results to help us understand how we can help clean the water, making the water more environmentally friendly.
Will bayou water actually be cleaner than river water?
What will we do with the results?
Can we help clean our water biomes, making them safer?
