It's remarkable to think that a compound renowned for its safety and stability in commercial products could have dramatically compromised the health of our planet, but that's just what chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) has done. This video segment describes how CFCs, once widely used in refrigerators and aerosol cans, damaged the protective layer of ozone in our atmosphere. The segment is five minutes four ...

These experiments use simple materials to prove that a lot of one's body heat escapes from one's head and that wearing a hat stops some of this heat loss. In addition, students consider how sitting directly on cold ground will cause one to lose heat faster than sitting on insulating material. Full description.

In this activity, students describe the positive effects that trees have on air quality and determine how to landscape a home with trees to decrease energy use. Students will draw a map of their yard or school site showing the location of trees and check a leaf of each tree for particulates. They will then make observations on several different days to determine which trees save energy and draw on ... Full description.
