May 09, 2014
By KCS Staff

On May 8, the 8th, 9th, and 10th graders traveled to Kualoa Ranch to perform an outdoor lab in which they designed and conducted their own experiments, testing hypotheses about water quality in the creek at the ranch. Students tested the pH, temperature, salinity, flow rate, turbidity, and dissolved oxygen levels in the creek and compared data from different sites. They learned about factors that affect water quality in different areas, and how water quality may affect the organisms living in the water.
