Efficient waste management is a major precondition for reaching sustainability. An educational hands-on module for fifth-graders was applied to support 4R (reduce, reuse, recycle, recover) by retracing a usual method of waste treatment. The first module focused on individual options to minimize waste and the second on handling waste until incineration. Both modules are suitable for (informal) outreach and (formal) classroom implementation. The third module consisted of an onsite visit in an incineration plant or of a classroom multimedia presentation. A total of 276 fifth-graders participated in our study. A subsequent analysis showed a clear pattern: knowledge scores increased after participation on short- and long-term notice. When applying a semantic differential, relevance and interest correlated positively with knowledge achievement, showing that learning about waste management is important. View this paper.
