Science Class Takes Kids Outdoors in Reston
Science Class Takes Kids Outdoors in Reston

The seventh-grade students of Langston Hughes Middle School are getting their boots wet in October through Reston Association's Watershed Experience Program.

They are learning about runoff, impervious surfaces and pollution by using a scaled watershed model.

They are using kick nets to collect and to study what lives in the stream and determining what that means for water quality.

Students are learning about stream shape, depth, riffle/pool geometry and flow while timing pingpong balls in the stream. Chemistry kits are used to measure the dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH and nitrate parameters of the water.
