Product Description
Learn about the effects of an oil spill on the environment through a hands-on engineering challenge! The goal of this challenge is to clean up all of the oil from the feathers and from the water in the time provided. Students will work in teams to devise a plan to get the oil spill cleaned up in a specified time of work. Math extension problems (in both SI and metric units) are provided including measurement, percentages, volume calculations, and more. Through the activity, students will understand the challenges of cleaning a major oil spill disaster and will lead to discussions on the affects on marine plants and animals. This is great for for an Earth Day activity.
