Science Olympiad – Erosion Experiment
Objective: Students will observe how the type of soil affects how much erosion can occur.
For this experiment, we took aluminum foil and used it to line narrow plastic bins. The bins were placed at a downward angle that led into another plastic bin at the bottom, sort of like a water slide. The plastic bin at the bottom collected the excess water as it went through the soil. We compared different soil types from the area, collecting four samples of each. Once the slides were created, we poured a cup of water in the soil at the top of the slide and observed it as it made its way to the bottom.
