Water Testing and Analysis by the United States Geological Survey

This activity enables students to meet and interact with practicing scientists, to see scientific equipment being used by professionals, and to participate in a local data gathering and analysis exercise. It also should provide the student with some information on the attributes of clean or potable water. Each student will collect a water sample and bring it to class to be tested by a visiting United States Geological Survey (USGS) scientist. They will then fill out data sheets and answer questions based on this data.
