Description: The Advanced Technology Environmental and Energy Center (ATEEC) is a resource for businesses and educators based in Davenport, Iowa. Part of their funding comes from the National Science Foundation, and their outreach work includes educational resources like this activity on "The Oiling of America". This resource is designed to help students learn about the long-term effects of the Exxon Valdez spill off the coast of Alaska, and it includes information about educational standards and the materials that will be required for this activity. The activity requires that students do some independent data collection and also do a bit of investigating into localized oil leaks and spills in their home garages and driveways. Overall, it's an activity that brings together critical inquiry and hands-on research. In order to download this resource, users must complete a free registration.
