Last month, for the fourth consecutive year, I was privileged to stand in front of a fifth-grade class as a volunteer in the I LOVE Science program in Northwest Florida. My purpose was to initiate the class into this excellent program of bringing scientists into the classroom. We were set that day to discuss and demonstrate, through experiments and demonstrations, how to remove pollutants from water. For kids in Northwest Florida, thoughts of water usually mean a beautiful emerald sea, pure white sand, and an idyllic day at the beach or fishing. Northwest Florida elicits beautiful memories of water for all of us residents.
