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. Lake Carson needs your students' help to solve its environmental dilemma. Students take on the role of environmental forensics experts, using 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. Each compelling kit—designed for your discipline of choice—brings forensic science into your classroom. Note: Some kits are available with the perishable material included or with a voucher to request the perishable material later at your convenience.
