Teacher Resources

The promotion of science and environmental awareness is important to the future of this world, and that is why it is so important to Enersolv.

We are currently a sponsor and partner with Decatur, Alabama-based Chestnut Grove Elementary School, through which we provide resources for students and teachers at the school to encourage excellence in education.

Along with our educational resources and speakers bureau, we also provide funds for teacher training programs that emphasize the business management principals of author Stephen Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Another great resource for science resources, including hands-on demonstrations, is Athens State University’s Science in Motion program. Click here to visit the web site.

If you need educational resources or would like to schedule a speaker for your class, contact us at 256-350-0846 or click here to send an e-mail .


The Edible Aquifer
In this easy and very kid-friendly project, students will learn how aquifers work and how groundwater can become contaminated. For more information about groundwater and other activities to use in your lesson plan, Click here to visit The Groundwater Foundation web site.

What you will need:
Clear plastic cup
Crushed ice
Clear soda
Ice cream
Colored sprinkles and sugars
Food coloring
Straw

How to make an edible aquifer:
1.   Fill a clear plastic cup 1/3 full with crushed ice (represents gravel and soils)
2.   Add enough soda to just cover the ice
3.   Add a layer of ice cream to serve as a “confining layer” over the water-filled aquifer
4.   Add more crushed ice on top of the “confining layer”
5.   Use colored sprinkles and sugars to represent soils, and sprinkle them over the top to create the porous top layer
6.   Add food coloring to the soda and pour on top of the aquifer. The food coloring represents contamination and demonstrates what happens when contaminants are spilled on the earth’s surface
7.   Using a straw, drill a well into the center of the aquifer
8.   Slowly begin to pump the well by sucking on the straw. Watch the decline in the water table
9.   Notice how the contaminants can get sucked into the well area and end up in the groundwater by leaking through the confining layer
10.   Now recharge the aquifer by adding more soda, which represents a rain shower
