Development of this testkit was made possible thanks to the support of the NSERC PromoScience Grant

Our family started with the scavenger hunt and a mini kit. The kids were excited to explore a new experiment each day for a whole week. They liked it so much that we shared the experience with the school and 4-H Saskatchewan, who then taught similar lessons with the mini kits to the 4-H Saskatchewan summer day camps. Our 4-H club and family each have a freshwater explore kit now. What an amazing summer of discovery! The kids are more engaged and asking questions about local watersheds, ecology, chemistry, and the effects of humans on the natural environment. We are excited to learn more in the years to come!
