These 3 lessons are for high ABE/low ASE students at a level D-E Reading level to practice identifying key points in video and text and analyzing the causes and effects of social issues, and identifying solutions to these problems. By watching two short videos and reading EPA materials on the effects of lead exposure and a short article on the specific drinking water crisis in Flint, MI, students will examine key issues, analyze the problem and its causes, identify approaches to solving this problem and ones like it in other locations, and apply this approach to other scenarios that are relevant to their immediate lives.
This kit is a historical overview of American representations of chemicals from the three sisters to the Love Canal. It compares conflicting constructions about nuclear reactor safety, depleted uranium, Rachel Carson and DDT. Through analyzing diverse historic and contemporary media messages, students understand changing public knowledge, impressions and attitudes about chemicals in the environment.
A presentation with Professor Philippe Grandjean about the dangers of chemical interference with the developing brain. This presentation, “Children’s health - Risks to brain development from exposure to environmental chemicals”, presented on 6th November, 2019, meeting of the French High Council for Public Health (Haut Conseil de la Santé Publique, HCSP), at the Ministry for Solidarity and Health in Paris.
Working individually or in groups, students explore the concept of stress (compression) through physical experience and math. They discover why it hurts more to poke themselves with mechanical pencil lead than with an eraser. Then they prove why this is so by using the basic equation for stress and applying the concepts to real engineering problems.
Molybdenite, or "Moly Ore" as it is sometimes called, is a high luster sulfide mineral. The name molybdenite comes from the greek word molybdos, "lead," as it is often a lead-grey color. It is virtually indistinguishable from graphite, except that molybdenite is only slightly lighter in color, yet heavier in weight. Molybdenite ore is composed of smaller molybdenum ions between layers of more massive sulfur ions. The sulfur layer has a strong bond to the molybdenum, but not to other sulfur layers, hence the softness and perfect cleavage. As the most common molybdenum-containing compound, almost all molybdenum is mined in the form of moly ore.
