Challenge Team Abstract
Team Number: 062
School Name: Ramah High School
Area of Science: Geology - Soil Drainage Analysis
Project Title: The Dam Problem
We will find how much water seeps through the earthen dam of the Ramah Reservoir. In order to do this we will dig a hole that is one cubic foot in size. We will determine the amount of time it takes for the hole to fill with water. Once we know how long it takes for the hole to fill with water, we will be able to measure the dam and create a problem that will apply our data to the entire area of the dam. We will use the supercomputer to calculate the amount of water passing through the dam.
