Junior Scientists Working Hard at Iracambi

After a rainy winter break, the Junior Scientists have come back to continue their studies!  After a few struggles with organizing equipment, they have been taking measurements for pH, turbidity, conductivity, temperature, flow, and dissolved oxygen.  By going to different sites around Iracambi, they can compare what makes the measurements different: for example, is being downriver from a cow pasture different than being upriver?  The kids learn about all kinds of cause and effect, and how our own activities might affect what's happening in the landscape around us.  

The data stores are becoming quite impressive!  With all the information the Junior Scientists have gathered about the natural world, they're becoming experts in rainforest management!  

We'd like to extend a thanks to everyone who's helped make this wonderful program possible: GlobalGiving, the teachers at the schools, the bus drivers, the Junior Scientists themselves, and of course, donors like you!
