Carolina Investigations® for AP* Environmental Science: Acid Deposition 8-Station Kit

Item # 181096 Exclusive

Students measure the pH of unpolluted water and simulated acid rain and model the effects of acid rain on human-made structures. They determine the buffering effects of 3 types of bedrock (granite, basalt, and marble) and observe teacher-demonstration tests of the pH and alkalinity of local water samples to determine their sensitivity to acid deposition. The materials in the kit are sufficient for 32 students working in groups of 4.
