Grades 9-12.

  • Learn about some environmental impacts of population growth
  • Perform static aquatic toxicity testing

During the lab, students prepare various concentrations of ammonium sulfate, a fertilizer component, and introduce Daphnia magna into their solutions. After 24 hours, students observe the mortality percentage of Daphnia in each concentration and determine the LC50 of ammonium sulfate.
