Some of the inventions we depend
on for convenience and entertainment cause pollution. Fossil fuels
(gas, coal and oil), are necessary to produce electricity in most power
plants. The smoke and fumes from burning these fuels are released
into the air and combine with moisture to produce acid rain. Join
schools from around the globe to determine if the proximity of a fossil
fueled power plant to a school's location affects the pH level of rainwater
in that area.
The project will run from February
2002 through April 2002.
