Living sustainably is vital for the continuation of life on Earth and during this workshop S4 participants will investigate this, the effects of greenhouse gases, and using and protecting water as a resource. We will also explore our dependence on plastic, the pollution it causes and how to reduce it, and how burning fossil fuels for energy is contributing to global warming. Finally, the workshop will focus on green energy sources and how emerging technologies can reduce humanity’s impact on climate.
Dependence on Nature
In the second workshop of the year S4’s participants will explore humankind’s relationship with, and reliance on, nature. We will learn what a food web is and why it is important, and how different species perform ecosystem services vital to humanity’s survival. We will explore how radioactivity works, why we use it, and its dangers! The final section covers proteins, their structure, why they are the focus of chemistry and vital for all living organisms.
