Water Workshop

Marina and Melissa opened this workshop with an explanation of what the Hydrological (Water) Cycle is. The group was then broken into smaller discussion groups and listed how they use water in their daily lives. Then in the bigger group they posed the question, “how can you reduce your water consumption?” Then they presented a pie chart of how freshwater is distributed (70% Agriculture, 20% Industry, 10% Domestic). This was a good transition into discussing water pollution and agricultural runoff. The workshop ended with a small activity of testing 4 water samples (the Bay, tap water, bottled water, and the MET drinking fountain) for pH, nitrates, and phosphates.
