Carbon dioxide (CO2) and global warming This experiment was performed to ascertain the effect of carbon dioxide on environmental temperature. Industrialization has brought about deforestation and the burning of fossil fuels on an unprecedented scale and this has increased the emission of CO2 significantly. The results of this experiment will show how the increased level of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is contributing towards making

Understanding the El Nino effect This lesson is a good one for students to have a better understanding for their environment. It is important for students to have an understanding for the things around them. El Nino effects us every 3-5 years and that will definitely be in the students life time. It is important for students to know about the weather patterns and how they are effected by the El Nino effect. Through doing this le
Understanding the greenhouse effect This science fair project was conducted to find out how different surface conditions affect atmospheric temperatures caused by the greenhouse effect. The testing was done using a surface of water, sand, black soil and carpet grass.

Understanding the health effects of the ozone This paper tests whether individuals engage in avoidance behavior in response to information about pollution, and whether this behavior explains the lack of epidemiological evidence of an association between ozone and health. To ascertain whether ozone affects health, I first test whether “smog alerts” lower the incidence of asthma hospitalizations in Southern California from 1989 through 1997.

What are the health effects of ozone on patients with athsma? People with asthma are the only segment of the population that has been identified to be the most acutely responsive to ozone exposure. Although younger adults (teens to thirties) experience larger lung function changes than do older adults (fifties to eighties), the limited data available do not suggest that children have larger responses than young adults for a given exposure.
What effects would changes in the ozone layer have on Antarctica's penguin population? The penguin population in Antarctica is diminishing. Scientific teams have already investigated predator-prey relationships, disease, and environmental pollution as possible causes. Data has been collected and analyzed. No correlation has been found between these factors and the penguins' decline. The International Symposium on Environmental Issues is meeting late next year in Sydney, Australia. E
Science kits, science lessons, science toys, maths toys, hobby kits,
science games and books - these are some of many products that can
help give your kid an edge in their science fair projects, and develop
a tremendous interest in the study of science. When shopping for
a science kit or other supplies, make sure that you carefully review
the features and quality of the products. Compare prices by going
to several online stores. Read product reviews online or refer to
