The Science across Asia Pacific Project introduces a new approach to learning science and environmental issues through encouraging communication between school children in different Asia Pacific countries. The aims of the project included the following: introducing an Asia Pacific dimension into science education by raising awareness of different perspectives, ways of life, and national traditions of students in Asia Pacific countries; raising awareness of the ways in which science and technology interact with society, industry, and the environment; providing opportunities for students to develop communication skills in the widest sense, including in languages other than their own; and providing opportunities for schools in different countries to collaborate. This book includes three environment related topics: "Drinking Water,""What Do You Eat?," and "Using Energy at Home." The teaching units provide activities that can be meshed into the curricula of 14 to 17 year old students of science as well as other curriculum subjects. The teaching units are self-contained and include information about using the units, teacher and student notes, maps, and forms including an exchange form to allow students to exchange responses with schools in different countries.
