Microblitz is a project run by a research team from the University of Western Australia. People from all over Western Australia are helping the project to collect soil samples for testing. The information will be used to study how to improve our environment, including our water quality.
Check out the Microblitz website with your family. Decide whether your family would like to participate and get your parents to join up. Are you going anywhere different these holidays, particularly in country areas? There might be good opportunities to take samples where you are going.
Leave a comment to tell us what you think of the project, and if you have signed up and participated in the holidays. What do you think the connection between soil and water quality is?
