Bio, chem students analyze water from UD farm

May 1, 2015--University of Delaware biology and chemistry students spent an afternoon down at the farm on Earth Day, April 22, taking water samples from three locations on the South Campus.

After measuring temperature, pH and oxygen levels, they took the water and samples of plant debris back to the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory (ISE Lab) for further analysis.

As part of a project to investigate water quality, BISC208 students and CHEM104 students teamed up in groups. The ultimate goal of the project was to apply problem-solving skills to determine which water samples from the three locations would best fit a given real-world scenario.

At the end of the semester, the combined biology and chemistry sections will present their findings on e-posters.
