Tenth Grade Studies Soil Science Out in the Field


Tenth Grade science (Core 10) took their laboratory on the road this week to study the impact of farming and saltwater intrusion on Maryland soil. Each of the seven classes gathered soil samples from various areas on Park’s Campus and one site off campus such as Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, Patuxent Research Refuge, Carriage House Farm, and more! Together, the grade will have tested and collected soil samples from 14 different sites around Maryland.

Next week, the work back at school will begin as students ask questions, form hypotheses, analyze data, and write up their conclusions.
