The resource provides access to a water analysis kit and instructions on how to use these. Using this resource provides teachers with great potential to engaging students and enable them to see the purpose and benefits of chemical analysis.

The resource could be used for project work and is particularly suitable for field work and ‘out of school’ clubs. It could also be used by community groups and by events organised by science clubs to test nearby rivers or streams.

The resource enables a range of tests to be carried out on water samples from rivers and streams.
