Sterling: Northeastern Junior College Water Festival welcomes 336 third through sixth grade students


From the Sterling Journal-Advocate (Callie Jones):

Another presenter was Jennifer Talagrad, from the University of Colorado, who talked about marine biology. During the presentation students learned about various life forms that can be found in different parts of the ocean, from tide pools and kelp forests to coral reefs and the deep sea…

Katie Boyd, from the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network, led the “Let’s Play and Make It Rain,” presentation. Students learned about how rain is measured, by making their own rain with water guns and measuring it in rain gauges. Boyd talked to the students about how scientists measure the amount of precipitation an area gets, telling them it’s important that they know even if it didn’t rain, so they know exactly what happened each day.
