In Colorado, drilling for oil and natural gas using hydraulic fracturing, sometimes referred to as fracking, is big business. But questions about its impact on the air and water are far from settled. With support from the National Science Foundation, University of Colorado environmental engineer Joseph Ryan heads a team gathering data on the pros and cons of oil and natural gas development, including the use of hydraulic fracturing. Part of the National Science Foundation Series “Science Nation.”
Students demonstrate the importance of emulsifiers in combining oil and water mixtures.
Students demonstrate the scientific method as they explore what makes popcorn pop.
