The natural environment in which we live consists of all living as well as non living things. The environment includes soil, vegetation, rocks, microorganisms, atmosphere, natural phenomena, air, water, energy, climate, radiation, magnetism, electric charge, etc.
In order to make children understand these components of natural environment several Environmental Science Projects have been formulated.
These science projects or experiments are simple to perform and are pretty fascinating for the kids. While conducting these experiments or projects an adult supervision is necessary in order to prevent any kind of injury.
Science Experiments on Environmental Education:
The Environmental Science Projects help children to know about the facts and scientific principle of natural environment. These Environmental Science Projects may include certain environmental science topics such as global warming, waste management, oil spills, greenhouse effect, endangered species, air pollution, recycling, acid rain, ozone, water pollution, water conservation, Daphnia experiments, saltwater pollution, water purification, freshwater pollution, water pollution, water conservation, irrigation water pollution, aquatic life pollution, water filtration, metal pollution, bioremediation, drinking water quality, radiation, sound pollution, soil pollution and many more.
Some of the most popular Environmental Science Projects which are simple to conduct and are pretty amazing are as follows:
- Measuring soil erosion
- How is pH of water affected by soil
- How does soil change with depth
- How much organic waste can composting worms eat
- Heavy metals and aquatic environments
- Investigate greenhouse effect
- Chemical analysis of rain water
- Biodiversity survey
- Air pollution
The Environmental Science Projects can be conducted at home or outside. The best place to start an Environmental Science Project is the garden at home, since the garden is home to several plants, insects, rocks, microorganisms, etc. Here children can do research on their surrounding environment and can also easily get the necessary raw material for their science project. By successfully conducting these experiments kids can learn a lot about the environment in which they live and appreciate its beauty and value.
