For more information on this program, please visit www.frontiersinphys.org. This set of activities will be used when teaching ecology, specifically environmental pollution/destruction. Students will learn about the impacts oil spills and oil leakage have on the environment. Further, they will explore the difficulties associated developing methods that could be used to clean or contain an oil spill. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to explore the impact of oil drilling in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and compare/contrast it with the potential for oil spills. associated with transporting oil across oceans.
