What's Flowin' On? Water Quality Testing Kits

My students need to be able to test water quality of local samples with this back pack water testing kit.

My Students

"There is no life without water." ~ Albert Szent-Gyorgyi. Water is the most important factor in agricultural life. I want my students to understand the importance of this fragile and limited resource, because without water, there would be no life!

I teach mainly Agriculture Biology Students in the central valley of California.

The majority of my students come from low income families who work in agricultural jobs. I am very lucky in that the students who I have want to be in my class. Agriculture Biology is a class that meet Life Science Credit for graduation, but the students must elect to take Ag Biology over Regular Biology in order to be in my class. My students are inquisitive, fun, and pillars of character. Most of my students are 10th graders, how ever, I do occasionally get 9, 11, and 12th graders. My students are encouraged to participate in leadership activities, community service, and expand their learning through after school activities at the school farm. Most of my students want to better themselves through education and hope to attend college.

My Project

With your support, I will be able to show my students how important water quality is. In Biology, we talk about the water cycle, water quality, and the importance of water on Earth. However, I have been unable to show my students how important water quality is since I have never had the supplies to do so. Agriculture needs water, and to be good stewards of the land, my students will be able to analyze and view the importance by preforming water quality tests.

This water quality kits will be used to reach out to my 100 students.

I know that they will be able to use the knowledge they learn to shape their educational career paths. Maybe by completing such an experiment, my students will fall in love with environmental science and go on to be stewards of the land both for mother nature and agriculture.
