Grade 9-College. Students assume the role of environmental forensic scientists to solve a fictional crime, an algal bloom breakout, by integrating core concepts in physics. Students engineer LED conductivity testers to test water samples and build a scale reservoir model to test water flow rates created by an upstream dam. Activities challenge students to use deductive reasoning, scientific methodology, and data comprehension. This kit is designed for 32 students working in 8 groups of 4.
Grade 9-College. The Lake Carson City Park is in desperate need of your help. An algal bloom has broken out in the lake, and it is threatening to shut down local businesses and send this vacation paradise into a downward spiral. Physics students jump into the role of forensic scientists as they work to solve this fictional crime. Using deductive reasoning and scientific methodology, they process evidence from the crime scene and integrate conceptssuch as data analysis and scientific writingto help build a compelling case. Students stay engaged throughout the investigation as they build LED conductivity testers to test water samples and create a scale reservoir model to test water flow through a dam. This compelling kit brings forensic science into your physics classroom. The kit is designed for 32 students working in 8 groups of 4.
