Water Quality Parameters and Kits for the Great Lakes Collaborative Research Workshop

  • Test parameters that are applicable across all levels of equipment complexity and cost 
  • Parameters cover the basics of the targeted contexts 
  • All versions of the modules (kits and context) feed the same parameters into the website 
  • Classroom A uses the basic kit focused on wetlands, Classroom B uses advanced testing in the context of health, both classrooms can compare the same water quality parameters on the website
  • Parameters picked with safety in mind, equipping classrooms with an intrinsically safe, engaging chemistry experience 

Test Parameters

  • pH
  • Dissolved Oxygen
  • Conductivity
  • Nitrate
  • Phosphate
  • Temperature
  • Turbidity
