Project Water and CELC students

Three free hands-on water – science workshops by the Connecticut Experiential Learning Center (CELC) and the New Haven Regional Water Authority will give students 4th to 8th grades a mini-education about water, from how to measure the health of a stream to how many marbles will make a cup overflow or sink a boat.

Workshops take place at the Blackstone Memorial Library and will benefit CELC’s food drive for the Branford Community Dining Room. Participants will be asked to contribute a specific food item to each session.

Tuesday, 9 November, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. How scientists assess health and water quality of streams.

Tuesday, 14 December, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. What shape does a water drop have? Can water be stretched? What does water’s surface tension mean?

Tuesday, 18 January 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. How many marbles make a cup of water overflow? Estimating predictions about water supply.
