It's the Pits

This learning activity from the Advanced Technology Environmental and Energy Center (ATEEC) is designed for students who already have background knowledge that could be applied to further study of real-life problems involving impurities of water. They will work with contaminated water samples, determine which contaminants are present and develop a procedure for cleaning the water. The lesson should require about one class session to complete.
