Citizen Scientist Program – Water Quality Monitoring.
Students are being offered the opportunity to be a part of a local waterway monitoring project. Each week (leading up to National Science Week in August), students will conduct water quality tests and macroinvertebrate surveys of our local waterway (Kincumber Creek) to determine the overall health of the habitat.
Whilst conducting these weekly surveys at the creek, we will also make observations of local water birds and collect water bird feathers as part of UNSW & ANSTO’s Feather Map of Australia Project. The students will present their data to the school & local community and communicate their findings in a display at the school during Science Week.
Visitors to the display will also have the opportunity to visit the study site and /or conduct their own water quality tests and observe a sample of macro invertebrates caught by the students as part of the project.
