Our scientific researcher needs your help! Which is worse,air or water pollution? Observations, experiments… and fun for the whole family!

Become a budding scientist and test the scientific approach in order to answer our researcher’s lead question: What is worse, water pollution or air pollution? Develop your hypothesis and then test it through laboratory experimentation and observation.

Through your experiments, you’ll be able to compare water pollution and air pollution, addressing such issues as acid rain, filtration of turbid water, insects and fish species found in Quebec, volatile organic compounds and more! You’ll also have an opportunity to analyze atmospheric pollution data gathered in the Montreal region. Lastly, you’ll wind up the activity by confirming or rejecting your initial hypothesis.

Are you ready to give it a go to help our researcher?
