Construct a miniature water treatment plant, manufacture recycled paper and plastic, build alternative energy devices, and more with this comprehensive environmental science kit. With materials, instructions, and background information supplied, you'll learn firsthand about the dilemmas facing our planet and how we might be able to solve them. The kit is organized into five main sections: renewable energies, natural resource usage, climate change prevention, waste and water management, and energy conservation. Exploring these topics through hands-on experiments with real results helps establish a solid grounding in these often abstract and intangible concepts. Get an understanding of the rapid growth in world population, explore the causes and consequences of the greenhouse effect with carbon dioxide tests, experiment with heat transfer and insolation, track down wasteful uses of energy in your home, and so much more. Includes a 48-page color manual to guides you through all experiments and energy conservation activities. Ages 8 and up.
