Addresses AP® Biology Big Idea 1 and Essential Knowledge 1.D.1 and 1.D.2. Using kit materials, students explore the origin of life by creating coacervates—phospholipid vesicles similar to those created in the laboratory by Alexander Oparin in the 1920s. Extending their new knowledge of coacervate formation and properties, students design an investigation into the various environmental factors affecting coacervate formation and movement.
