I’m Sieving in the Rain…Just Sieving in the Rain!
Today in Kotzebue
Rain, rain and more rain! We do need to wear our full rain gear every
time we sieve but it was exceptionally cold and rainy.
What Science Is Happening?
Just like firefighters, we wait for the bell, in our case the
phone. As soon as the “call” comes, we jump into our rain gear and run
to the lab to sieve mud. Will, Steve and Max went out on the boat and
did some mud grabs. Melinda, Kate and I sieved and sorted mud.
Below there are pictures of buildings in Kotzebue. Tell me what
you notice about the buildings here, that is different than the
buildings where you live.
