Drones, robotics, coding, turbines, 3d printing, motherboards, probes, blogs and more. We use technology to answer questions like ‘Do wetland plants really filter the water? ’or ‘What methods can we use to desalinate water from a salt marsh?’.
Technology Drives Water Monitoring System – WCE student, Keira Pugh, and her classmates are incorporating technology to build a monitoring system for the marsh. The study is ongoing with a goal to measure pH, temperature, oxidation-reduction potential, dissolved oxygen, and electro-conductivity. Check out Keira Pugh’s blog for updates.
Fredericton WCE develops technology for use at their Corbett Brook Marsh wetland located minutes from Fredericton High School. The forested wetland is open to the public and has a diversity of plants, birds and other wildlife.
