Decay and Renewal
Developed by the Cornell Environmental Inquiry Program, Decay and Renewal consists of a student edition and teacher's guide designed to enable high school students to carry out authentic research. By using scientific protocols to investigate the processes in wastewater treatment, composting, landfilling, and bioremediation of contaminated sites, Decay and Renewal teaches important science concepts within the context of environmental issues. Decay and Renewal is published by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and is available at 1-800-277-5300 or http://store.nsta.org.
