Science@IMSA – Wednesday: Ant Data Collection

Science@IMSA – Wednesday: Ant Data Collection

This Wednesday, our students became ecologists as they examined humans’ impact on ant populations. They developed a testable hypothesis, learned methods to test trophic interactions, and collected data through observation. Although ants outnumber us by about 1.5 million to 1, we can have a big effect on them!

These burgeoning ecologists will keep learning how humans affect the environment throughout the week!

Ask your student:

Do ants share the same habitats as humans?

How can we better share the environment with other animals like ants?
