A CIESE Collaborative Project

The Bucket Buddies Project

September 10 - December 15, 2015


Join Students around the World in this Environmental Study

Students around the United States and other countries will collect samples from local ponds to answer the question: Are the organisms found in pond water the same all over the world? Participants will:

  • Identify organisms in a water sample.
  • Compare their findings with other participating classes.
  • Determine which, if any, of the organisms are the same in other, more distant water sources.
  • Look for relationships and trends in the data collected by all project participants.
