Carolina Beyond the Tape®: Lake Carson Crisis Interdisciplinary Kit (with perishable)

$161.45
(backordered: in stock 10/13/22)

Description

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. Your students take on the role of environmental forensics experts as they use their engineering, modeling, deductive reasoning, and scientific methodology to piece together this scenario's events. They use their scientific background to eliminate suspects and identify the true culprit—and stay engaged throughout the investigation. Students use physics to build reservoir models and LED conductivity testers; test their chemistry skills with water quality assays; and hone their biology knowledge with macroinvertebrate identification. The kit is designed for 36 students working in 12 groups of 3 and includes perishable material when shipped.
