are part of the Upward Bound Trio program- MSIP, The Math Science
Initiative Program. We are one of two groups studying Water
We have completed many successful projects around our area. We also
study many different areas of water around the Vermillion area. Water
is the testing of the chemical properties of water and other information
about water. We studied many different components of water chemistry.
Some of the things we studied included: pH level, phosphate data, temperature,
turbidity, and nitrate.
pH level- measures the acidity and alkalintity of water and other solutions.
Phosphate-A salt or ester of phosphoric acid
- phosphate. (n.d.). The American Heritage® Dictionary
of the English Language, Fourth Edition. Retrieved June 25, 2007, from
Temperature- Temperature of the water.
