Lab-Aids is excited to participate live and in-person at the New Jersey Science Convention 2021. Join us October 19 - 20 at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal for hands-on workshops from Lab-Aids and at our Booth.
Come back soon for more detailed information on this event.
Modeling Antibiotic Resistance
Middle School Life Science
Students use a model to explore the cause-and-effect relationship between inappropriate use of antibiotics and the phenomenon of the evolution of antibiotic resistance. As they use the model, students use mathematical representations to support their analysis of patterns and trends in the results and to develop explanations for how and why the population of bacteria is changing.
Atmosphere, Climate & Global Warming
Middle School Earth Science
Students look at historical data spanning the past 100 years to try to understand the causes of current global warming. They ask questions related to the data to figure out what the evidence indicates and to better understand how human activities relate to global warming. This activity provides an opportunity to assess MS-ESS 2-6 and MS-ESS3-5.
Using Climate Proxies to Learn About Earth's Climate History
High School Earth Science
How can scientists tell what Earth’s climate was like thousands of years before human measurements? This activity simulates the use of fossil ocean foraminifera, tiny organisms whose growth patterns are different in warm or cold water. Your students will analyze and graph samples of replicas of these organisms, and use this information to determine relative warm and cold periods in the past 200,000 years. This activity is from EDC Earth Science, a NSF-supported high school earth science program from Lab-Aids that uses an active, data-oriented approach to the student of earth science and earth systems.
