A CIESE Collaborative Project

The Bucket Buddies Project

Welcome to Bucket Buddies! This project is currently open for registration.


Join Students around the World in this Environmental Study

Students around the United States and other countries will collect samples from local ponds to answer the question: Are the organisms found in pond water the same all over the world? Participants will:

  • Identify organisms in a water sample.
  • Compare their findings with other participating classes.
  • Determine which, if any, of the organisms are the same in other, more distant water sources.
  • Look for relationships and trends in the data collected by all project participants.
