Saturday the Sisterhood of Science traveled to Cornell's Duffield Hall to take part in several hands-on activites dealing with groundwater. Water as a resource will be a huge issue in the next 10-15 years. It's just hard for us to see here in the Northeast where we receive a modest annual rainfall.
Here, Cassie and Gabby try to figure out which wells were contaminated in a simulated town.
The girls studied porosity of different soil types ranging from clay to gravel.
Now that's teamwork! Thank you to the Cornell Nanobiotechnology Center for organizing and arranging these opportunities for us.
