What is your project about? My project is about oil spills and figuring out the best way (clean, remove, or absorb) to clean them up and the way how I will approach the long lasting effect on the ocean. Why did you choose this project? I chose this project because I wanted to make people aware about environmental pollution and what it does to the earth we live on. What was your result/overall conclusion? I found out the absorption/cheesecloth test worked the best and cleaned up the most oil and is the best way to clean up an oil spill. Why is your project important? My project is important because oil spills have been going on for 50+ years and they are horrible for the environment and will keep ruining the environment if we can't stop them.
