This investigation of the effect of air pollution on rubber bands is a snap! After closely observing the properties of a fresh rubber band, learners let them sit outdoors, both sealed off from and exposed to, open air. After a week, observations are made again to determine if being exposed to possible polluted air has made a difference. The intent is to demonstate that ozone has an effect on rubber.
