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.
