LESSON: Sewer sludge, Reactions and Fertilizer.

Part of a series of lessons in a unit called Wastewater Context for Matter and its interactions. Designed for middle school physical science, students will learn the role chemical reaction play in transforming sewer sludge into bio-solids used for fertilizer

UNIT: Wastewater Context for Matter and Its Interactions

LESSON: Solubility and the problem with F.O.G

Part of a series of lessons in a unit called Wastewater Context for Matter and its interactions. Designed for middle school physical science, students will understand the how solubility plays a role in the problems F.O.G. (Fats, Oils and Grease) causes in the wastewater system and what to do about it

UNIT: Wastewater Context for Matter and Its Interactions

LESSON: Light Bulb Efficiency

Part of the lesson series “Green Building Context for Electric/Magnetic forces, Energy, Waves and Signals”. Designed for middle school physical science, students conduct an experiment to determine the most efficient lightbulb by measuring thermal energy output. Then, generalize the findings to the efficiency of all electronic devices.

UNIT: Green Building Context for Electric/Magnetic forces, Energy, Waves and Signals

LESSON: What Are the Features of an Energy Efficient Home?

Part of the lesson series “Green Building Context for Electric/Magnetic forces, Energy, Waves and Signals”. Designed for middle school physical science, students draw a model of a home with as many energy efficient features as they know.

UNIT: Green Building Context for Electric/Magnetic forces, Energy, Waves and Signals

LESSON: Separating Mixtures - Engineering a Wastewater Cleaning System

Part of a series of lessons in a unit called Wastewater Context for Matter and its interactions. Designed for middle school physical science, student will design a process to clean simulated wastewater

UNIT: Wastewater Context for Matter and Its Interactions

LESSON: Poop to Power

Part of a series of lessons in a unit called Wastewater Context for Matter and its interactions. Designed for middle school physical science, students are shown how the methane gas released in the digestion of sludge can be used as a fuel to power the treatment facility itself.

UNIT: Wastewater Context for Matter and Its Interactions

LESSON: Density and Primary Treatment

Part of a series of lessons in a unit called Wastewater Context for Matter and its interactions. Designed for middle school physical science, students discover how density plays a major role in the treatment of wastewater.

UNIT: Wastewater Context for Matter and Its Interactions
