  • 01/13/2022 - Investigation: In April 2022, if we bore two trees each of 4 different species (Cedar, White Pine, Balsam Fir, White Spruce) at Edna Drinkwater School in Northport, Maine, and study the samples with a microscope and scanner to count the tree rings to tell the tree’s age and growth during the life of the tree, and compare our records to Belfast Water District weather records, will it show the same data about the climate? Plus, what is the total amount of Carbon Dioxide the tree sequestered and the amount of C02 the dead trees are putting back out into the atmosphere?

  • 12/21/2021 - Investigation: How much growth will be produced by sugar kelp and alaria kept in a 30 gallon man made saltwater tank, that is kept at around 50 degrees Fahrenheit and is daily checked for pH and salinity levels? How will this growth compare to growth of sugar kelp and Alaria in the Damariscotta River Estuary? Which sample will grow larger in between November and April? This is important because it provides food and is a growing aquaculture industry in Maine.

    DETAILS
  • 11/29/2021 - Investigation: If we can see how many animals there are in a 15ft x 15ft square in Edna Drinkwater School Stream compared to Duck Trap Stream, we can collect data and record it on a graph; then we may figure out why there are more animal life forms in one place compared to another.

  • 10/12/2021 - Investigation: How does the Energy from the sun measured in amps, watts and volts, collected with a solar panel placed facing the south side of the Long Island school change with the percent of the cloud coverage from Oct to Jan. 2021
