Build-a-Buoy Extension: Water Testing Kits

A student built buoy can be turned into a data-collecting buoy. Teachers and students are given access to their own local water quality data from their schoolyard. The BAB is a small buoy that is outfitted with sensors that can include air and water temperature, conductivity, salinity, pH, current speed, water depth, and dissolved oxygen. This buoy allows students to have a sense of ownership over the quality of the water that runs through their school shed and encourages student to learn about how they can improve quality.
