Snack-Sized Science: Going Green and Keeping Clean

EarthEcho invites you to play along with us during “Snack-Sized Science”. These brief and interactive science demos with the EarthEcho team are meant to help your young-learners get excited to investigate the fascinating world of SCIENCE and hopefully explore more of EarthEcho’s digital resources...maybe even on their own! Join EarthEcho as we explore ways at home in which we can protect our waterways through the use of environmentally friendly and chemical-free cleaners.

Snack-Sized Science: Bundled Up with Blubber

EarthEcho invites you to play along with us during “Snack-Sized Science”. These brief and interactive science demos with the EarthEcho team are meant to help your young-learners get excited to investigate the fascinating world of SCIENCE and hopefully explore more of EarthEcho’s digital resources...maybe even on their own! Join EarthEcho as we learn about the ways in which marine animals are adapted to survive in cold ocean water. In this activity, we will make a “blubber glove” to protect your hand from icy water!

Snack-Sized Science: Defend Your Drain!

EarthEcho invites you to play along with us during “Snack-Sized Science”. These brief and interactive science demos with the EarthEcho team are meant to help your young-learners get excited to investigate the fascinating world of SCIENCE and hopefully explore more of EarthEcho’s digital resources...maybe even on their own! Join EarthEcho as we explore microbeads. We will use different filters to look at microbeads in common household products and discuss their impacts and what you can do to defend your drain!

PlasticSeas: Microbeads, A Major Problem

As the name suggests, microbeads are very small (microscopic) beads of plastic. Since they are particles of less than 1mm, they are almost impossible to capture as they enter household drains. This leaves these small, solid balls of plastic to enter our aquatic ecosystems where they are ingested by organisms and accumulated within the food web. In this activity, students are challenged to design and construct their own device to extract microplastics from cosmetic products such as facial cleansers, body wash, and toothpaste.
