Time For Student Investigation: Chemistry in a Petri Dish

WEBINAR (56 minutes) recorded February 1, 2017


This webinar shows you how to transform the “Chemistry in a Petri Dish” experiments which originally focused on acid rain, into a full lesson using other AACT resources. It also provides basic information about how to run the experiments and includes alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards, which calls for students to be involved in developing and implementing investigations that center on real world problems. These experiments are easy for the teacher to prepare and are fast enough that students can run them several times in a class period, giving them an opportunity for investigation.
