This instructional module was created at the 2011 ATEEC Fellows Institute, with the theme of bioremediation of contaminants in the environment. It focuses on a case study of a crude oil spill near Bemidji, MN and includes a multi-optional WebQuest.
The options in this instructional material offer a variety of resources that can be used to investigate an array of contamination sites and also allow students to explore locations in their own region. By studying multiple contamination sites, students will be able to better understand and address ecological, social, and political issues associated with remediation of contaminated sites.
