Carolina Investigations® for AP® Environmental Science: Wet Scrubbers and Air Pollution 1-Station Kit

(in stock)


Enable your students to construct a model wet scrubber that operates much like one on a coal-burning power plant. Students burn coal, observe how the scrubber removes particulates and pollutants, measure the scrubber solution's pH change, and measure the mass of solid pollutants removed by the scrubber. They then evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of wet scrubbers, and answer questions about fossil fuel use and air pollution.

This kit is designed for 1 group of 4 students. Digital teacher's manual, included FREE with kit purchase, is a 12-month eBook license to the Wet Scrubbers and Air Pollution Teacher's Manual and Student Guide.
