Inspired by NPR's Radio Lab "Poop Train" podcast. Perfect for project-based learning. A great project for middle school or high school science classes. Students are provided a variety of "common waste" to research. They are then prompted to share what they found in multiple ways. This project can be incorporated into units of study for sustainability, environmental issues, living environment, Earth Day, and more. Many ITSE standards are incorporated as students are prompted to research and present the information they found to their class in a variety of ways.
