RUIZ, Mariana  e  ACEVEDO, Adriana. Using an Experimental Vermicomposting Station to Develop Multidisciplinary Experiences at College Level. Form. Univ. [online]. 2011, vol.4, n.5, pp.21-28. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062011000500004.

This paper describes the use of a vermicomposting station at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, as an educational tool to generate multidisciplinary experiences. Students from five majors have participated in the station in one or more of the seven experiments that have been designed for this purpose, and the station has increased its productivity in almost 500%. This educational tool has allowed illustrating several topics on waste management, chemical analysis, biology, urban impact, efficiency and productivity, among others. In the near future, it is expected to incorporate new activities in several other courses, to continue promoting reflective practice, environmental concern, and sustainable technology development.

Palavras-chave : vermicomposting; educational tools; ecological projects; multidisciplinary experiences.
