Target Audience:
High school chemistry students
Project Goal:
Students will investigate the problem of air pollution in a given location and research possible solutions using a variety of tools (laboratory technology, Internet resources, multimedia technology, etc.). They will select the best solutions and present them to the class with the results of their research.
Learner Outcomes: Students will know and be able to:
As students work they will demonstrate an ability to:
Alignment with National Standards: This project demonstrates some elements of the following:

Assessment of Students:
Assessment will be ongoing. Students will keep daily logs of their work and complete weekly group self-evaluations. They will be assessed using a variety of scoring rubrics that will assess their chemistry knowledge, their ongoing work during the project and their final project.
