Experiment to Focus on Water Quality

The 2010 National Science Experiment, 4-H2O, will focus on water quality and climate change – two very important issues facing our global community.  Designed by North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, the experiment will use a three-tiered model to engage youth of all ages to learn how carbon dioxide can affect aquatic organisms.  Additional materials will be available in late May.  Have a question?  Email us at 4-HNYSD@4-H.org.
