LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The University of Nebraska's State Museum is hosting a program for children and families that will explore the Ogallala Aquifer.
The Sunday with a Scientist program will be held this Sunday at Morrill Hall on the university campus in Lincoln from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Researchers from UNL will provide hands-on activities to help kids understand groundwater and surface water concepts. The Ogallala Aquifer is a massive groundwater resource that lies beneath Nebraska and smaller parts of seven other states.
Activities will include a large plexiglass simulation of an aquifer showing the effects of pumping wells on water levels, water quality and nearby streams.
