2008: Helpful Hydrogels

Water is everywhere - in the sky, in the ground, and in our homes. However, caring for this vital resource is often a challenge for each of us. Conservation means using water wisely. In the 2008 National Science Experiment, youth explore a new superabsorbent polymer - called hydrogels - that can help with water conservation...right in our own backyards.
