Beth A. Covitt; Kristin L. Gunckel; Alan Berkowitz; William W. Woessner; John Moore – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2024
Computational models are employed to study and respond to pressing environmental issues such as groundwater contamination. This use of computational models, which often involves algorithms and uncertainty that are hidden to the public, has implications for environmental science literacy. This study applies a design-based research approach to…

Oshio, Toko; Kupperman, Jeff – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2022
In response to the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, USA, early childhood education was one of the targets of intervention and prevention for children who were exposed to lead poisoning, because high-quality child care could potentially help improve their developmental trajectories. The Provider Empowerment Program used human-centered design (HCD)…

Mariah Syifa Salsabila; Yayan Sanjaya; Eliyawati Eliyawati; Witsanu Suttiwan – Journal of Science Learning, 2024
The research on the ability to think in systems in education is also minimal, which is why the ability to think in systems in Indonesia has not been optimally trained. Dealing with a system's complexity can be challenging at any age, particularly for students who must apply the system's cognitive capabilities during the learning process. Systems…

Bazilio, Arianne A.; Kovarik, Michelle L.; Morrison, Janet F. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2022
Chemical solubility and equilibria are paramount for understanding everyday systems. Recent events have led to more interest by the general public in chemical equilibria that occur in drinking water systems. This presents a great opportunity to increase student interest and engagement in the more complicated aspects of chemical equilibria. Shiny…

Vezza, Mariana E.; Sosa Alderete, Lucas G.; Agostini, Elizabeth – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Biosphere contamination is a current environmental and social issue that must be included in the school programme. It is essential that students recognise their responsibility, and be knowledgeable about the generation and reduction of environmental pollution. Dyes are usually used in school activities and discharged into household effluents,…

Tiano, Martin; Roose, Max – Journal of Chemical Education, 2022
We describe here a 4 hour experimental session based on reaction monitoring of the degradation of an organic pollutant via a Fenton-like reaction. An aqueous solution of p-nitrophenol is treated with hydrogen peroxide and magnetite, and the progress of the reaction is monitored by UV-vis spectrophotometry and/or gas chromatography using an…

Swenson, Sandra; He, Yi; Boyd, Heather; Good, Kate Schowe – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
Students reasoning with data in an authentic science environment had the opportunity to learn about the process of science and the world around them while developing skills to analyze and interpret self-collected and secondhand data. Our results show that nearly 50% of the treatment group responses were accurate when describing the reason for…

Luzzi, Enrica; Ambrogi, Veronica; Filippone, Giovanni; Liguori, Barbara; Salzano de Luna, Martina; Aprea, Paolo – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Water pollution is one of the biggest environmental issues of our times. To address such a huge challenge, the full involvement of everyone is required. In this context, we report the results of outreach hands-on activities aimed at presenting to the general public two classes of materials with high potential in the removal of common water…

Singh, Vishvendra Pratap; Susaniya, Ankit; Jain, S. C.; Vaish, Rahul – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Water pollution has been one of the major issues of the present time. It is essential to educate students regarding this issue and its possible solutions. In this article, a demonstration of a typical adsorption-based water cleaning process is presented. The removal of methylene blue (MB) and detergent from an aqueous solution is demonstrated…

Kiyici, Gülbin; Canbazoglu Bilici, Sedef; Yamak, Havva; Kavak, Nusret – Science Insights Education Frontiers, 2022
The purpose of this study is to examine changes in pre-service science teachers' entrepreneurship mindsets during engineering design-based activities. A holistic single-case study was used in the study. Twenty-eight pre-service teachers carried out engineering design-based activities (five weeks, 20 hours) in the science teaching laboratory…

Patel, Anisha I.; Podrabsky, Mary; Hecht, Amelie A.; Morris, Sophie; Yovanovich, Sasha; Walkinshaw, Lina P.; Ritchie, Lorrene; Hecht, Christina – Journal of School Health, 2020
Background: Federal law requires water access in schools where meals are served. Schools report high rates of water accessibility in cafeterias, but observations indicate lower adherence. Although observation is costly, it permits a more detailed assessment of a water source to determine whether it provides effective access that encourages water…
