On Tuesday, students at Prescott Elementary School braved blizzard conditions to collect soil samples to test their permeability.

Once the samples were collected, students weighed 50 grams of the soil, observed it with magnifying glasses, and placed the samples into a filter. One hundred milliliters of water was then poured through the soil in the filter, and students timed how long it took the water to pass through the soil.

Science is a favorite subject at Prescott.
