Product Description
Take a Life Science or Environmental Science unit to the next level with this Oil Spill STEAM Project. This project teaches students about oil, its impact on the environment and the various engineering techniques utilized to clean it up. This bundle is more than a simple build and test. It includes activities and a day by day process for teaching students about oil, impact and various techniques to make their final build as effective and informed as possible. After learning about oil and all the multiple techniques to clean it up, students will design and build their own oil spill cleanup device (choosing from a wide variety of materials the group has "purchased" using classroom money earned throughout the week).

This Project is geared for middle school students and contains about 2 weeks of materials and activities. I have included teacher guides to help make the project as clear as possible and setting up the testing phase as easy as possible.
