Tires and ecosystems
Tires are one of the worst things that can be thrown into a landfill. They take up a lot of room and they can collect rainwater that is a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. Tires can be repurposed, or used for other purposes, such as tire swings and playground toys. They can also be recycled and used to make school gym floors and shoes.

Hundreds of mussels attached to rocks in the rocky intertidal zone
Mussels have two hard shells for protection and avoid drying out. When the shell is open, the bivalve extends its foot for digging or anchoring. Mussels need ocean water for food. They are found in lower and middle intertidal regions.
Measurement of Heat
Measurement of heat is done in calories. One calorie is the amount of energy required to raise one gram of water one degree Celsius. To measure heat, you divide the change in temperature of a sample of water by the mass of the water. (02:12)
History of Economic Cycles (~1800-2000)
Cycles Research is not a commonly studied subject and yet there are definite trends in history in the finding of information about cycles. Starting with Sir William Herschel there have been reports of various length cycles in many economic variables including commodity yields and prices, stock markets, business conditions, building activity, growth, price fluctuations and industrial production. The common cycles periods found over extended time periods are mentioned and the people that they are

Bend That Bar
In this activity, the students will learn about material properties. They will learn that engineers must consider several material properties when designing. This activity focuses on strength-to-weight ratios and how sometimes the strongest material is not always the best material.
This lesson will allow students to explore an important role of environmental engineers: cleaning the environment. Students will learn details about the Exxon Valdez oil spill, which was one of the most publicized and studied environmental tragedies in history. In the accompanying activity, they will try many "engineered" strategies to clean up their own manufactured oil spill and learn the difficulties of dealing with oil released into our waters.
