Celebrated annually on June 8th, World Oceans Day raises awareness about the role oceans plays in the survival of all species on Earth. One problem that confronts wildlife is oil spills. Conduct a simple and engaging science experiment that simulates an oil spill clean-up. Predict what physical and chemical reactions will occur between substances and discover the results. What substance was most effective at cleaning up the oil spill, and why? Who knew observing hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, and nano-technology could be so much fun?
