This project models a real world scenario and ecological issue: eutrophication, which results in bodies of water that are depleted of oxygen and are in a sense “dead”. The goal of the project is that the student becomes aware of a real ecological issue and how humans can inadvertently create damage to the natural environment. The student will also research and understand the far reaching effects of this issue and how we can work to prevent it.
