Mythbusters Eco-Edition

When you think detective, I bet you don't think young children!
 
That's right some local students gathered at Cornell Cooperative Extension for "Mythbusters Eco-Edition".
During their time as super-sleuths, participants learned about many different topics, including how different species of animals affect the environment.

The kids get to participate in different experiments like a "Float or Sink" test and sorting with recyclable materials the students learned how to solve problems in nature by using scientific methods to dig for information.

Binghamton student Olivia Jacobus said, "The science that Mythbusters do is really cool, and well, eventually when I grow up I want to be a mythbuster."
 
One question students attempted to solve was whether there are Native American artifacts in the soil of the new location of the farmer's market across from Otsiningo Park. Here, archeologists from Binghamton University taught the students about surveying land, and the process of looking for artifacts.
