This air quality activity will have the students conduct an experiment to sample and measure the particulate matter in the air at various locations and/or elevations in the schoolyard. This is an easy activity that can easily be scaled up or down depending upon the grade level.
This lesson was designed for fourth grade students. The main objectives of
this mini-teach are to identify and be aware of how much garbage we can produce,
identify landfills and their purposes, and explain how recycling saves energy
and resources while reducing pollution.
This experiment was performed to ascertain if watering Bambusa vulgaris (common bamboo) plants with sea water will cause them to grow faster, slower or wilt. Sea water is sometimes used to put out forest fires. The result of this experiment will help us understand the long term effects of using sea water to put out tropical forest fires.
This science fair project was conducted to determine the effect of pollution on the stomata density of coniferous trees. The science fair project was done using samples of pine tree leaves from 3 locations with different levels of traffic flow.
The purpose of this experiment is to test the water near animal pens in Batesburg-Leesville for fecal contamination. I hypothesize that the wells located near the animal pens will be more likely to show fecal contamination than the wells that are not near animal pens.
The Phoenix metropolitan area, like many large cities, has problems with air pollution at certain times of the year. You can do a simple experiment to determine some of the factors that affect air pollution.
The problem with increased CO2 is its affect on global warming. CO2 is not a pollutant but it does trap infrared heat from radiating back into space. This phenomenon is known as the greenhouse effect. This global warming then affects global ecosystems by having effects on water vapor and other climate features. If CO2 levels continue to rise, the results to the planet are difficult to gauge
Science kits, science lessons, science toys, maths toys, hobby kits,
science games and books - these are some of many products that can
help give your kid an edge in their science fair projects, and develop
a tremendous interest in the study of science. When shopping for
a science kit or other supplies, make sure that you carefully review
the features and quality of the products. Compare prices by going
to several online stores. Read product reviews online or refer to
