Kemtec Science: Environmental Extremes Plant Growth Kit

  • Target Grades: 6-12
  • Number of Students: 24 Students

All of the supplies and instructions you need to simulate the conditions of acid rain, saline soils, drought and erosion in the classroom. A complete introductory unit on Environmental Studies. Six experimental protocols lead your students through weeks of hands-on, scientifically sound experimentation demonstrating current environmental concerns. The plant science model is applicable for any biology course and readily adaptable to accommodate independent study and honors level students within the standard course of study. This kit introduces students to the scientific method, then invites them to design their own experiments as a comfortable next step after they have become familiar with the experimental model, protocols, data collection, and data analysis processes. The ideal way to introduce students to thinking like scientists and engage them in individualized science or science fair projects. Most kit components are reusable for many years. May be purchased without pH meters and digital scales for use in more complete laboratory settings, or as a complete kit including equipment. Includes a complete instructor manual with reproducible student protocols. Plan to spend four to six weeks on this project.
