This lab is designed to help students understand the following: the interdisciplinary fields of science, a practical application of chemistry in the real world, and the need to carefully conduct experiments and evaluate data in a collaborative environment. In this experiment, students will compare the toxicity of different concentrations of nanoparticle suspensions on brine shrimp, along with controls, to perform toxicity assays and data analysis.
