Laboratory Experiences During Field Trips


The RSC offers a variety of laboratory experiences and exercises for high school districts. These experiences are typically offered during class field trips and can be accommodated for a wide variety of ages and levels of experience.

The photos below show several different lab experiences the RSC has offered, including determining bacteria concentration in water, marine archaeology survey techniques, electrolysis of shipwreck artifacts, and the mechanisms of pollination including plant and bumble bee anatomy. Additional lab experiences include microbiology in the environment, harmful algal bloom toxins, algal identification, water chemistry analysis for nutrients, techniques in creating an herbarium museum, macroinvertebrate analysis, and fish, turtle, and frog identification and habitat workshops.
