Trash In Space!!

Students examine the amount of trash produced by each person in a given day. In groups, they discuss where the trash must be placed in space until their return. Using their own lunch, they weigh the materials before and after consumption. They discuss ways to reduce the amount of food packaging by making some of it edible.
