Learning resources about water science

Back in 2008 ESR scientists were interviewed for an educational outreach programme called The Science Learning Hub, a national project managed by the Faculty of Education, University of Waikato.

While some tools and techniques discussed in the videos have since been improved, the information is still relevant today to how ESR helps keep people safe and healthy through our water science.
