Budding Scientists and Water Experts Compete in Annual Poster Contest

Posted: Thursday, June 30, 2022

Mesa Water District recently hosted the Institute for Conservation Research and Education’s poster symposium for local high school students. As part of students’ environmental sciences classes, they conducted research at local organizations and natural habitats. More than 100 students presented their insightful posters on topics ranging from soil and microplastics to plants and fertilizers.

The symposium is one of many educational programs that Mesa Water supports throughout the year.
The future is bright with these up and coming environmental scientists!
