    Children and Water Quality: Learning, Improving in Ohio and Uganda

    May 26, 2016

    Fundraiser underway to help boost educational effort; ends May 31.  A fundraiser at buckeyefunder.osu.edu to support a creative educational effort that links elementary school students in Ohio and the East African nation of Uganda as they learn more about issues impacting water resources in their communities is underway.  “Water Across the World” is a project led by Suzanne Gray, assistant professor of aquatic physiological ecology in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University. It involves students from Muskingum County, Ohio, and Lake Nabugabo, Uganda.  “For the past few years, we have been trying to foster communication between the two groups of students about the similarities and differences in water quality issues each group faces,” said Gray, who studies how freshwater fish respond to environmental change and who has conducted research in Uganda since 2010.
