This lesson examines how effective colloidal silver is in inhbiting bacterial growth in comparison to anitbiotic ointment.
Colloidal silver is an anit-microbial agent that is synthesized and tested with strains of bacteria and/or yeast to determine its growth inhibition effect.
This lab is designed to help students understand fluid flow, capillary action, surface tension, and chemical tests used in microfluidic devices/sensors
Lesson has students create narrow fluidic channels to observe fluid flow
Audience: Middle School, High School
Lesson has students relate real-world applications to mathematical concepts by monitoring bacterial growth over one week
Subject: Biology, General Science, Tools and Technology
Lesson has students experience how a scanned probe can create an image of an object
Lesson that demonstrates the properties of hydrophobic and hydrophilic materials
