Pollution, of various kinds, is having a significant impact on society and the environment. According to the World Health Organization, some 4.2 million deaths every year are a result of exposure to outdoor air pollution. Ninety-one percent of the world’s population lives in places where air quality exceeds WHO guideline limits.
And then there is plastic pollution. Some 18 billion pounds of plastic waste flows into the oceans every year from coastal regions. The problem is, this plastic destroys local habitats and is known to be a contributing factor to animal mortality.
Education is certainly part of improving the situation. Teachers can educate their students so they can make a difference – whether it be in their own personal lives, or as environmental scientists and inventors in the future.
To spark the inner environmentalist in students and to make them aware of it hands-on science project was conducted for students of class 6B to teach them about pollution.
