Computer School Students Study the Hudson
Students at The Computer School in New York City learned first-hand that the Hudson River may not deserve its grimy reputation. On a crisp, sunny October Day, sixth and seventh graders walked from their school to a pier along the Hudson River. Led by ACES teachers Ms. Rives and Ms. Butler, students were eager to get a little wet as they conducted scientific testing on their local estuary.
Students took turns collecting river water with buckets and then using thermometers, turbidity tubes, and special kits to measure different parameters. When they measured turbidity, students found that the water was quite clear, and nitrogen and phosphorus levels along with pH were all in the normal range. Back in the classroom, students calculated the average readings and then entered their data on the ACES National Water Study Map!
