In Stock (Ships within 1-2 business days)
Students will compare two methods of oil spill cleanup: biological and physical. Applying both a special blend of oil-degrading microbes and a hydrocarbon-encapsulating polymer to oil and examining the results, students will draw conclusions with regard to the effectiveness of each approach. Kit includes a specially prepared stained vegetable oil to simulate crude oil, allowing students to use real oil without any of the hazards and associated disposal costs. Contains enough materials for 15 students, teacher's manual, and student study guide copy masters.
