Students Wonder, “What’s In Your Water?”

  • November 16, 2022

More than 20 students from Conners Emerson School handed out water test kits at the Bar Harbor polls on election day. The eighth graders gave out more than 100 kits to local residents, allowing them to test their homes’ well water for arsenic and other trace minerals. This citizen science collaboration with the Town of Bar Harbor is part of the All About Arsenic program, funded by a federal Science Education Partnership Award.
