Middle and Upper Schoolers Study Brandywine Creek Ecosystem
Middle and Upper School science classes have been visiting Brandywine Creek to study the ecology, water chemistry and macroinvertebrates of the ecosystem. Students collected information on water temperature, pH and the presence of nitrates and phosphates. They also swept the banks with nets and brushed the rocks to uncover the insects and other invertebrate species in the Brandywine. These classes will be continuing to visit the creek for additional studies throughout the school year!
