PowerPoint Template forOrigins & Chemical Change Project• Project Purpose– To make a connectionbetween your personalinterests and chemistry– To share what youlearn with ourcommunity of learners• Background– All matter is chemical– Our human ability tomanipulate matterempowers our humanabilities– No matter what ourinterests are – athletic,artistic, financial…chemistry is involved
Your Task• Research and Create a report onhow chemical changes areinvolved in an object orvocation of interest to you.• Keep track of your sources ofinformation.• Make sure you save all yourresearch separately to your Ydrive or a personal thumb drive.• Make a PowerPointfollowing the guidewith a minimum of 8slides as outlined inthe project guide• Present your report tothe rest of the class.

Raw MaterialsStep II D-E / Slide III• Task• Identify the raw materialsused to make yourcomponent• Many raw materials maybe manufactured – trace atleast one ingredient backto before human hands ormachines touched it (rawearth, plant, animal …materials)• Presentation• Show specific places onearth where the rawmaterials are sourced foryour item• Include a map and imagesof the places raw materialsare sourced• Show the people who livethere
Chemical ChangeStep II F / Slide IV• Task• Identify chemicalchanges that take placeas raw materials aremanufactured intoyour component oritem.• Choose one chemicalchange to focus on• Presentation• Describe the chemicalchange with an equationand show a model drawingof compounds involved• Provide a description andimages of how this changeis made – use the languageof chemistry• Share any info you thinkis important or interesting
Places & Effects of Sourcing & ManufacturingStep II G / Slide V• Task• Research examples of specificplaces where your –– Raw materials are sourced(mined or grown) andprocessed– Components are grown,assembled or manufactured• Research what the positive andnegative economic, health andenvironmental effects of theseactivities are.• Presentation– Present images of theplaces materials areprocessed &manufacturing is done.– Discuss major impactsfor the people andecosystems wherethese activities takeplace. Use thelanguage of chemistry.
Impacts of Use and DisposalStep II H / Slide VI• Task• Research health andenvironmental impactsrelated to the use anddisposal of your product• Answer the questions– How can negative effectsbe reduced?– How could positive effectsbe increased?• Presentation• Outline what the majorimpacts of use anddisposal of your itemare.• Give examples ofproblems andsolutions to problems(or negative effects)
Sources of InformationStep II - I / Slide VII• Task• Assemble all of yoursources of informationinto a bibliography– If you use wikipedia,ehow or similar sitesyou should have areference to the sourceinfo for the article• Presentation• A simple list ofsources which you canexplain.
