Tire Production and Pollution Control. Environmental Education Curriculum. Revised.
Topeka Public Schools, KS.
This unit was developed to introduce secondary students to the many facets of a typical, large manufacturing plant - the Topeka Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company - in an effort to increase awareness of sound environmental practices in industry. Its five major foci include the production of tires and quality control procedures; applications of physical science to the design, testing and production of tires; the economics of production and pollution control; solid waste disposal problems and solutions; and sound pollution and its control. Also included are activities relating to tire design and decomposition products of a landfill. A pretest-posttest instrument to aid in evaluating student performance and the behavioral objectives for each major concern are provided. Also included are annotated film and slide tape lists and scripts and patterns for making relevant transparencies. (MLB)
