Hangout on Air: World Water Monitoring Day

Prerecorded on September 18th, 2014

Join Philippe Cousteau as he works with South American students from World Learning, Inc. to celebrate World Water Monitoring Day. Together they will discuss the importance of water quality monitoring while demonstrating proper methods for sampling water in the field. Classrooms tuning in can ask questions live on air and share the results of their own water sampling. 

In this step-by-step hangout, we invite classrooms from around the world to join us in testing temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, and turbidity from water in their own communities. Low-cost kits for water quality monitoring may be purchased through the World Water Monitoring Challenge:
