Activity gives kids hands-on science experience

Posted By: KLKN Newsroom

The University of Nebraska's State Museum is hosting a program for children and families that will explore the Ogallala Aquifer.

The “Sunday with a Scientist” Program will be held this Sunday at Morrill Hall on the university campus in Lincoln from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Researchers from UNL will provide hands-on activities to help kids understand groundwater and surface water concepts.

The Ogallala Aquifer is a massive groundwater resource that lies beneath Nebraska and smaller parts of seven other states.

Activities will include a large plexiglass simulation of an aquifer showing the effects of pumping wells on water levels, water quality and nearby streams.
