Remote control water testing

Remotely test water samples at TRU using the internet, robotics and the BC-Integrated Laboratory Network.

Big Little Science Centre (BLSC) in collaboration with TRU introduces you to a remote control chemical analyzing machine located at TRU and operated over the internet.

While at the science centre, take control and test for yourself some water samples at TRU for total nitrogen.

This is long distance research.

BLSC visitors will be able to choose real water samples representing different environmental locations, initiate total nitrogen chemical analysis, and observe the sample analysis in real time.

Two student research assistants who are experienced users of the remote instrument will facilitate the activity and be able to answer questions about the activity and their current research at TRU.
