Students use the wastewater apparatus as a model to observe simulations of primary, secondary, and tertiary wastewater treatment processes. Then they use the scientific method to explore a question about wastewater treatment and pollutant removal. The guided activity is composed of 3 processes that will require a total of 95 minutes and at least 2 class periods to complete.
