Snack-Sized Science: Don't Be Salty Worksheet
The Don't Be Salty worksheet provides background information, detailed instructions and more to accompany our Snack-Sized Science video.
Expedition Water by Design Virtual Field Trip: A Hydroponics Farm Tour with CropKing
Come join us for a live virtual tour of our working hydroponics farm in Lodi, Ohio. Learn about how to grow fresh local hydroponic plants while saving resources for our environment and help fight climate change and save the world one lettuce head at a time.
Expedition Water by Design Virtual Field Trip: Wastewater Treatment Plant
Join EarthEcho and Pinellas County Utilities as we learn more about wastewater treatment in Florida. Explore the ins and outs of wastewater management including how debris chemicals, nutrients, and bacteria are removed from water and more!
Snack-Sized Science: Don't Be Salty
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 the water cycle and desalination. During this demonstration, you can follow along and set up your own backyard water cycle/desalination experiment. Learn how water moves on our planet and how to remove salt from saltwater to get fresh water!
Expedition: Water by Design Virtual Field Trip with Manatee Lagoon
Explore the fascinating connection between Florida manatees and powerplants. Take a deep dive into the history of Manatee Lagoon – An FPL Eco-Discovery Center®, an educational attraction located in Riviera Beach, Fla., and the adjacent Florida Power & Light Company Riviera Beach Next Generation Clean Energy Center. Learn about the role power plants play in this threatened species’ migratory habits and survival. This 45-minute event will take place on Friday, Friday 14th at 10 a.m. EST.
Virtual Field Trip: Aquaponics 101 with Mr. Jim Trogdon and Mr. Paul Brentlinger
Join EarthEcho International and 2017 EarthEcho Expeditions Fellow, Mr. Jim Trogdon, and Mr. Paul Brentlinger, CEO of CropKing Inc as we learn all about aquaponics.
In this curricular guide, middle school students learn about an alternative farming technique that addresses water use in agricultural farming, the environmental impacts of fish farms, and urban development and population growth. This guide promotes 21st-century skills by engaging students in the history of aquaponics through various texts; improving their communication skills by explaining how an aquaponics system works; and engineering your own classroom aquaponics unit through an interactive design challenge!
Constructing An Aqueduct - Engineering Design Activity
This design challenge moves your students from passive to active learners through a cross-curricular, hands-on team challenge in direct correlation to real-world issues of water conservation. In this lesson, students, grades 6-8, will learn about aqueducts through a close reading activity. They are then given different scenarios in an engineering design challenge to create an aqueduct to supply freshwater to their city, despite various obstacles.
