Aquifer Recharge

Why do events like the Gold King Mine spill influence so many individuals, in so many ways? How does water travel above and below ground, and how can we use that information to predict who is affected by surface and groundwater contamination? To find out, you’ll create a model of a shared natural underground water supply—a shared aquifer—and experiment with how simulated contaminants move through the aquifer by conducting your own water testing.  

Educators, fear not: We’ve got DIY Groundwater Model Instructions that with a little elbow grease and $60 in parts will make 10 working groundwater models (for groups of three students) that you can use year after year!

Teachers, you can find the full resource on Science Friday's website by clicking here.
