Environmental Detectives


Earth's environment makes life possible. Environmental engineers focus on ways to sustain and improve the natural environment. This program provides a hands-on exploration of our environment by solving mysteries and investigations. Participants take a fresh look at air and water; fight the evil pollution; come face to face with the very special Carbon atom and his favorite friend Ms. Oxygen; work as environmental detectives to investigate the 3 Rs of green living - reduce, reuse and recycle. Participants conduct experiments to understand the Greenhouse Effect, air and water pollution; witness water's vanishing color act!; make air catchers, a model greenhouse and an environmental souvenir. stemforkids.net/courses/environmental-engineering/
