Environmental Chemistry

Environmental Chemistry- Hope Erganian

Ms.Freeman’s environmental chemistry class is starting a new project. The class wants to figure out how much food the students waste from their lunch at school. Together, the class is going to be testing 50 students total. Each member of the class will choose a few students to find at lunch. Any food that the student does not eat off their lunch tray will be put into a bag. The class is going to weigh the food after lunch and figure out how much food we waste just from our school lunches. They are going to base the percentage of wasted food off of the high school students alone. Although they are doing the project over high school students, the class thinks if they tested the elementary that the percentages would be higher.
