360Science™: Human Activity and Carbon Emissions
360Science™ blends the best of student-engaging digital content with easily adaptable hands-on labs to offer your students a uniquely comprehensive learning experience.
In this lab experience, students investigate the three main sources of anthropogenic carbon emissions: combustion, land use/deforestation and cement production. They also develop a model to describe the cycling of carbon among the hydrosphere, biosphere, geosphere and atmosphere and learn that matter, such as the C atoms in CO2, cannot be created or destroyed, only converted from one form to another. Editable, differentiated instructions range from a time-sensitive prescriptive lab to full open inquiry, and robust online videos and content—including a virtual reality (VR) simulation—help students prepare for and better understand the labs they’re conducting.
