Edible Ice Cream Aquifers: What can you Learn About Groundwater?
Saturday, April 8th, 3:00-3:30 PM and 4:00-4:30 PM
Biomedical and Physical Sciences Building, Room 1415
Make your own edible ice cream aquifer and learn about the water underground. Find out how groundwater in the aquifer can become contaminated by watching what happens when you start adding chocolate syrup, sprinkles, and soda to your ice cream aquifer. In the end, you get to eat what you create.
Learn about aquifers, groundwater, their importance and actions people can take to protect these resources. Following, we will demonstrate groundwater pumping and contamination using a groundwater model. The groundwater model has aquifer cross sections and illustrates how water and pollutants move through these systems.
Pre-registration required limited to 35 particpants.
