The Water Cycle by Ms. Tracy Straub, Ms. Amber Gartner, and Mr. Jeffrey Rogers, Florida Engineering Society
December 5, 2015
December Science Saturday was about The Water Cycle. It was presented by members of the local chapter of the Florida Engineering Society. Students learned about the importance of water in central Florida, with its extensive aquifers formed in limestone karst. They made a "water cycle in a bowl" and observed the cycle of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. They also made their own aquifers, using sand, rock, and other materials. Elementary school teachers ( in the last photo) from Marion County participated and took supplies, materials, and knowledge back to their classrooms. We also thank our season sponsors, Ron and Phyllis Ewers and Lockheed Martin, and our high school volunteers for another successful season of hands-on science.
