Toyota Tapestry Grant

Students from the Barnard Environmental Studies School in New Haven collected water from the West River in New Haven last fall which was then dehydrated and frozen until the day of the project. The lab analysis was to find the mercury concentration levels and how they change through food webs. Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Theodora Pinou said the students didnít touch the samples, but helped during the examination. They taught the students to analyze dissolved oxygen and temperature concentration in samples and how to document what they saw. The day long project also helped show teachers how to quantify mercury and how it cycles into the environment. The event was sponsored in part by Toyota Tapestry Grant, which is only awarded to 50 organizations each year.
