Looking Downstream: Could Nanosilver in Consumer Products Affect Pond Life?
In this Science Buddies project, you'll use a live specimen to investigate how a specific freshwater organism, Daphnia magna, responds to the exposure to different concentrations of nanosilver. You can customize your materials to include the live samples, magnifier, pond water, and other supplies needed to complete this experiment.
