More than ever, scientists are concerned about the ways Earth's resources are being used, and what Earth's inhabitants can do to preserve and conserve the environment. Environmental Science Experiments introduces students to the challenges in balancing the use of resources with maintaining a healthy environment. The experiments in this title encourage students to increase their awareness of the environment, the impact of environmental change, and how Earth's residents can stop or slow the destruction of habitats. From experiments about acid rain and oil spills to studying a freshwater habitat and investigating alternative fuels, the experiments in this book will serve as inspiration for students to pursue an education in a related field.

Experiments include:

  • Oil Spills and the Environment
  • Acid Rain
  • Slowing Down Erosion
  • Creating a Model Landfill
  • What Nature Recycles
  • Solar Still
  • Filtering Water to Prevent Pollution
  • Investigating Alternative Fuels
