Water Pollution Science Fair Project

Investigating Water Pollution

Investigating Water Pollution | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Water pollution is a serious problem that can have a big impact on wildlife and human habitats. Join us as we investigate the different types of pollutants that can affect water and the creatures that live in it.


The hypothesis is that water pollution can have a negative effect on wildlife and human habitats.

Method & Materials

You will take a trip to a wetland area, divide into groups, and look for different types of pollution. After discussing the pollution, you will pick up the litter pollution and take it back to school.
You will need paper, pencils, clipboards, rubber gloves, plastic garbage bags, and art supplies.


Through this experiment, students were able to identify different pollutants in a wetland area and relate a pollution prevention message through words and art. It was also observed that some pollutants can not be seen.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting and unique because it allows students to explore a wetland area and discover the different types of pollution that can affect the water and the plants and animals that live in it.

Also Consider

Experiment variations to consider include taking a trip to a different wetland area or exploring a different type of water source.
