Kensington Elementary STEM Academy:
Investigating Freshwater Science

 

Kensington Elementary School, Glens Falls

Fresh water doesn’t just mean the water we drink or use at home – it is all around us and we need it to survive! Have you ever walked beside a creek and wondered where the water came from, where it goes, and whether it’s clean? Come design and develop experiments to investigate the water’s purity and path, and explore other real-world concerns. Through hands-on experiments, projects and fun, you can use science to better understand the environment!
