  1. WHERE Challenge: The Light Bulb By Michael Tu

  2. Presentation Outcomes • WHAT resources are used to make an incandescent light bulb? • WHERE on Earth do these resources come from?

  3. The Bulb Calcium Oxide (CaO) Silica (SiO2) Trona (Hydrated Sodium Bicarbonate Carbonate) Silica Sand Limestone Trona • Found as sand or quartz in nature • Found throughout the world • Made from the thermal decomposition of materials like limestone • Mainly found in the US, Canada, Mexico, China, Japan, Belgium, Brazil, UK, France, Germany, and many more… • Mainly found in the United States, Botswana, Kenya, and Namibia Quartz WHAT resources are used to make the bulb and WHERE are they found? Coal and salt are also used to make the bulb and they are found throughout the world…

  4. The Filament Tungsten Scheelite • Found in the minerals scheelite and wolframite • These minerals are mainly found in China, Canada, Russia, Austria, Bolivia, and Portugal Wolframite WHAT resources are used to make the filament and WHERE are they found?

  5. The Base Brass Aluminum (Al) Bauxite • Copper and Zinc • Copper is mainly found in the US, Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Mexico, Russia, Peru, and Indonesia • Zinc is mainly found in the US, Canada, Australia, Peru Copper • Found in bauxite • Bauxite is mainly found in Australia, Brazil, Guinea, and Jamaica Zinc WHAT resources are used to make the base and WHERE are they found? or

  6. Other Parts An incandescent light bulb has many other parts and many resources are used to make those parts… These minerals are not only used to make light bulbs, but tons of other products as well, like computers, TVs… These minerals are what we use everyday and we must conserve them in order to meet the needs of the next generation!
