Grades 7-12.
Observe the effects of 3 doses of gamma irradiation on seeds and compare with control seeds. Rye grass and mung bean seeds have a short germination period, so students can see the effects within 48 hours and the experiment can be completed within 2 weeks. Kit contains enough for 30 students to work individually.
Learn concepts of air pollution and its harmful effects using one form of a common air pollutant, sulfur dioxide on experiments with plant life. This kit provides instruction, apparatus and materials to experiment with plant seedlings exposed to a sulfur dioxide atmosphere at a known concentration which produces an effect on plant life that can easily be observed within several days.
Using comprehensive, curriculum-based investigations, your students will learn about the metric system, mass, volume, density, gravity, temperature and pH. Through these activities, the class gains a thorough understanding of how to gather information, graph and analyze data, and interpret scientific diagrams. Grades 7-10.
Your students will become junior detectives, honing their forensic skills by solving the mysteries surrounding a fictitious "crime scenario". They'll conduct a series of forensic analysis activities to determine if a crime has been committed. Each activity is centered around a particular analysis technique to include toxicology, chromatography, finger printing, document analysis and simulated blood typing.
Visualize the potential contamination of groundwater. Construct mini-groundwater simulation models showing the movement of a simulated, colored pollutant. Determine under what conditions contamination occurs from a variety of sources such as spill, farms, and buried tanks and how polluted groundwater eventually reaches the drinking water supply. In the process, students learn about the water cycle, water quality, ppm and ppb pollutant contamination, porosity of soils, and other related concepts. Grades 6-10.
Observe the use of microbes for oil degradation. Model various spill scenarios and monitor the effectiveness of the provided freeze-dried oil-degrading microbe mixture in remediating the waste. Set up a simulated oil spill in water and treat it with the special microbial product to observe the physical changes degradation of oil film over time. Additionally, they simulate three spill scenarios on beach sand, gravel and cobbles in order to observe the difference in degradation rates. The class also explores bioremediation methods for other waste chemicals and compares their effectiveness to traditional clean-up methods. Grades 7-10.
Introduce your students to the fundamentals of chemistry. Provide your class with a basic understanding of the primary concepts of chemistry as they investigate how matter is classified, identify the various types of mixtures, and compare the properties of solutions with the properties for mixtures. They'll also learn to identify elements and compounds and study how chemical symbols, formulas and equations are used to describe chemical reactions. Grades 7-10.
Introduction to elements, compounds, and mixtures, along with changes that these substances undergo as well as the characteristics of some elements, symbols for elements, and structures that make up atoms. Common mixtures are separated by evaporation and chromatography . New compounds are formed and changes that indicate chemical reactions are observed. Reproducible manual that includes 10 activities/laboratories, vocabulary lists and definitions, and a complete answer key. Experiments include: Classes of Matter, Elements, Symbols for Elements, Atoms, Common Mixtures, Separation by Evaporation, Separation by Chromatography, and more. 24 Students in Groups. Materials needed but NOT included: goggles, tape. Grades 4-9.
Seven different solutions are combined in every possible combination and chemical properties are identified by observing their reaction with other solutions. Chemical reactions include gas production, color changes and formation of recipitates. Students use their information to identify 4 unknown solutions. Contains materials to conduct the experiment twice, safety glasses. For 24 students working in groups of 4. Grades 7-11.
Observe the color and state of matter for 14 different substances. Test liquids for the presence of odor and observe the texture of solids. Test the acidity or alkalinity of liquids. Test the solubility of solids in alcohol and water. All materials included except: water, stirring rod, graduated cylinder, balance, hand lens (optional), safety glasses, test tubes or depression plate for solubility test. Designed for 24 students in groups of 4. Grades 8-11.
Determine the relative effectiveness of various commercial sunscreen lotions under laboratory conditions. Can serve to promote scientific investigation of consumer products. The experiments consist of allowing light energy to act upon a photosensitive chemical agent with the blocking of the light energy dependent upon sunscreen employed. After the exposure the amount of chemical conversion is measured and plotted as a function of the "Sun Protection Factor", SPF. Kit is designed for 24 students working in groups of 4. Grades 6-8.
