Sustainable Science experiments
Making DIY’s is so fun, but science experiments can be even cooler, and you may even be able to use these for school!
Fun science projects to do that do not produce waste!
Food scrap growth experiment
The leftovers of our food can be used for so many things like growing food scraps, composting, feeding chickens, and more. It’s such a great way to remind ourselves that what we might initially consider trash isn’t necessarily waste. Track the height of the scraps over time and that graph can be used to provide evidence for your claim! Credit
air pollution experiment
It can be hard to understand the concept of air pollution when it’s not always easy to actually see it. This simple experiment can help prove that there is more in the atmosphere than just air and why it’s important to keep it clean. To do this experiment, spread petroleum jelly on a plate or cup and take a before picture and leave the cup outside for twenty-four hours. The next day, place the white paper behind the plate or inside the cup to make it easier to see all the particles that have collected in the petroleum jelly. Credit
Acid Rain experiment
Acid rain can infiltrate ground water, lakes, and streams. How does acid rain affect aquatic ecosystems? To find out, all you need is a container of water, pH strips, and vinegar. Put containers of water on a table and add different amounts of vinegar in each one based on the pH of the water after adding that amount. Then, analyze the effects it has on duckweed plants. Credit
