Through a small group simulation using probability, students explore how different population growth rates are impacting biodiversity levels
In two simulation games, students determine individual short-term consumption strategies that will maximize resources for the entire group.
Students share a bowl of goldfish crackers to simulate even and uneven consumption of limited resources.
Students use the engineering design process to create and test prototypes for cleaning up oil spills and rehabilitating marine birds.
"The activities not only bring out important content, but they also provide real-world context for environmental, population and sustainability issues. They engage participants in very thought-provoking and critical-thinking discussions.”Helen de la Maza, Environmental Educator, Irvine, CA
