The last month of the program was busy for Earth Team Antioch as they worked on completing their GLOBE Research Project.
In the months leading up to school district closures and stay-at-home orders, Antioch interns visited the Upper Sand Creek Basin several times to collect water quality data along the creek. They followed GLOBE protocols when collecting data and were looking forward to present their research at the annual GLOBE Student Research Symposium in May. Unfortunately the event had to be cancelled this Spring due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but Earth Team students still held a mini-SRS and presented to projects partners and community members via Zoom.
Antioch interns focused their research on comparing water quality trends within the Upper Sand Creek Basin. They tested water at the Urban Drool inlet and the Sand Creek outlet and monitored any changes in dissolved oxygen levels, nitrates, pH, temperature, and turbidity.
On May 23rd, Antioch interns joined together with interns from Pinole and Skyline Earth Teams to present their research to project partners, local scientists, and faculty at their high schools. You can watch the full meeting here.
