Earth Day is this Week!

April 22 marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Earth Day offers a perfect opportunity to talk with students and young scientists about environmental, ecological, and energy issues, conservation efforts, and what it means to think "green."

The Science Buddies library of science fair project ideas contains a number of projects that offer a launching point for relevant conversations with students of all ages. These projects bring the issues into focus, making them down-to-Earth and "real" as students get hands-on with Earth Day.

We'll be posting projects throughout the week in celebration of Earth Day. First up, grab a bucket, collect some frogs, and evaluate what's really going on beneath the surface of a local pond with this Science Buddies science fair project idea:
