Cleaning Up Our Backyard: Students Go Hands On with Science

Posted: Updated:
Charlotte, N.C. (WJZY) -- We've seen images of the BP oil spill in the Gulf and the more recent coal ash spill in the Dan River. It looks like the mess would be impossible to clean up.

That's exactly what Eastway Middle School students are learning how to do: use science to clean up and prevent tomorrow's chemical spills and pollution.

The 8th graders are part of an exclusive science club - sponsored by "Clariant" a global chemical company just down the road from the school.

The chemical company works with Discovery Place to bring chemists into the classroom - teaching them real solutions to real problems.

Students get to share their point of view through our pair of Google Glass.

Training future scientists to clean up and up keep our big backyard.
