Students conduct experiments aboard floating classroomSchuylerville High School students in Beth Roberts’ class are getting a hands-on lesson on water quality and microscopic organisms. Through a grant offered by the Lake George Association, students were able to spend part of Tuesday, Sept. 19 aboard the Floating Classroom on Lake George. Students measured water temperature, pH and dissolved oxygen levels, used a secchi disk to measure water clarity, and identified zooplankton using plankton nets and field microscopes.
