Ocean Clean-Up Workshop For Students Entering Grades 4-6
June 30 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PMFree
Students entering Grades 4-6 in the Fall 2022, join Kristin Quell-Garguilo at the Ridgefield Library to learn about pollution in the ocean through experimentation. Come learn about the challenges our ocean faces and how we can make a difference!
Students will simulate the problems associated with water salable chemical, hydrophobic chemical, and physical pollution. They will have the opportunity to test for changes in salinity and pH of the water quality. Participants will be given a chance to predict the effects of these pollutants on the ocean and its inhabitants and then try different clean up methods to see what works best.
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Ridgefield Library.
Parents must remain in the building for the duration of the program. Children under the age of 12 cannot be dropped off.
