The purpose of this experiment was to test the relationship between climate change and diseases carried by mosquitoes. Students from Wooster Middle School (WMS) monitored weather using GLOBE Atmosphere protocols and Pond/Stream Conditions using GLOBE Hydrology protocols. We then did independent experiments using mosquito eggs/larvae to better understand how factors like temperature, pH, larval concentration, light and water type affected mosquito hatching and growth. Our results were very inconclusive due to limitations in sampling and errors in the mosquito growth chambers.
