Participants design processes to treat water contaminated with acid, oil, and other pollutants.
|Hints for uses in your library||Use a large, shallow plastic bin to recreate an oil spill in the ocean. Participants can engineer booms and skimmers out of common items to isolate and clean the spill. Assign dollar amounts to each resource. Give the participants a budget that forces them to make choices as they can’t afford “the best” for both oil and acid removal.|
