National Science Experiment 4-H2O

The North Carolina A&T State University systems biology team developed the 2010 4-H Youth Science Day Experiment for the entire nation which focused on water quality and climate change. The NSF I3 systems biology Co-PI Gregory Goins, Department of Biology; Dr. Stephanie Luster-Teasley, Department of Civil Engineering; and Dr. Claudette L. Smith, 4-H Program Leader for Cooperative Extension, submitted a proposal with experiment ideas. A&T was chosen as the winner by a national team of judges. Using a three-tiered experiment model, NC A&T engaged youth of all ages to learn at the simplest level how heightened levels of carbon dioxide can affect aquatic animals, plants and other living organisms in lakes, streams, rivers and oceans. Governor Beverly Perdue proclaimed Oct. 6, 2010, the 4-H National Youth Science Day in North Carolina. The proclamation included notice that the 2010 experiment was created by A&T.
