AP Environmental Science Students Test Water Quality

Cici Faucher’s AP Environmental Science students recently ventured into the community to take a look at our own neighborhood environment. The class conducted water quality studies at both Deer Creek and Shady Creek as part of the WE Service Program, a program that incorporates service into AP courses. The class will continue to visit the creeks each week to further observe the area and take measurements of dissolved oxygen, nitrates, pH, and chloride. The study will end with students working on a local project, and exploring the global ramifications of the study.
