Kids love to get wet in the hot summer, and there is no better way to learn how to be a stream scientist than to jump in and make a big splash In this program, kids will be stream scientists, and research streams and the plant and animals that live there. Together, we will explore the Ashuelot River as it flows through Keene, NH. Be careful, you might get wet... and hooked on science at the same time! Students should bring shoes for walking in the water, clothes that can get wet, and a dry set of clothing.

Dr. Stephen Hale earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Louisiana State University and the University of New Hampshire (2001), respectively.
