Solutions to oil spills


Lesson focuses on how designers make use of numerous techniques to provide speedy methods to oil spills or other threats to all-natural water sources. Through this lesson, students work in teams to analyze an "oil spill" in the classroom, then design, build, and test a system to first contain, and then remove the oil from the water. Pupils choose from daily what to build their oil containment and clean-up systems, assess the effectiveness of the solution and the ones of various other groups, and provide their particular findings to your class.

Age Levels:

8 - 18

Targets

  • Understand ecological engineering.
  • Read about biochemistry and chemical manufacturing.
  • Learn about manufacturing design.
  • Understand planning and building.
  • Read about teamwork and working in teams.

Anticipated Learner Results

Due to this task, students should develop knowledge of:

  • ecological manufacturing
  • problem solving
  • teamwork

Lesson Activities

Pupils learn how environmental designers develop gear and procedures to help reduce environmental effect from accidental oil spills. Pupils work with groups to design and build a system out-of everyday items which will eradicate oil from a classroom waterway. They test their system, assess their own results and those of various other pupils, and provide their particular conclusions into course.
