Join IWR at the MSU Science Festival on April 8 to create your own edible ice cream aquifer and learn about the water underground. Find out how groundwater in the aquifer can become contaminated by watching what happens when you start adding chocolate syrup, sprinkles, and soda to your ice cream aquifer. In the end, you get to eat what you create.
Learn about aquifers, groundwater, their importance and actions people can take to protect these resources. Following, we will demonstrate groundwater pumping and contamination using a groundwater model. The groundwater model has aquifer cross sections and illustrates how water and pollutants move through these systems.
Pre-registration is required for this event! Reserve your spot at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/msu-science-festival-edible-ice-cream-aquifers-tickets-31418197675.
Two sessions will be offered starting at 3:00 and 4:00 PM in Rm 1415, Biomedical and Physical Sciences Building on MSU’s campus.
