Look at the attached PowerPoint. Discuss the information with your partner. This presentation is a quick introduction to the types of problems environmental engineers solve. When you think of environmental engineering, you think about the environment, right? And when you think about the environment what comes to mind? (Listen to student responses. Expect students to say: the Earth or some body of water or the atmosphere.) Today's presentation focuses on land and air quality. These are terms environmental engineers use when classifying their areas of study. We'll focus on water quality later. By the end of this presentation, you should be able to identify sources of air and land pollution, understand how pollution negatively affects the environment, and have learned some ways to reduce pollution.
Once you have viewed the information, answer the questions on the attached worksheet. Save the completed worksheet in the appropriate place on the network. Then, upload your completed file to this assignment link by clicking the Submit Assignment button in the upper right hand corner of this window. Proofread your work carefully before you submit it.
