“Lots and lots of dots, in blue water” a seven year old described the drowning victims to her mother. When consecutive hurricanes struck Haiti in 2009, a small village school lost over thirty school children, and the subsequent contamination of its wells produced a serious shortage of drinking water. In hearing of the account, my high school science students suggested: since we do all sorts of science labs, why can’t we learn the same information by developing a way to help them purifier their water? Thus began “dots in blue water”.
An important dots in blue water meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 9th in Mr. Baer's lab (room 304) from 6:30-7:30 PM for all sponsors, finalists, and their parents. This will begin to set into motion the planning for the upcoming year, leading up to the trip this summer.
