The Effects of Gold and Silver Nanoparticles on Brine Shrimp: A Toxicology Study

Subject: Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science

Audience: High School, Adult

Students will synthesize and prepare serial dilutions of gold and silver nanoparticles in order to determine their individual toxicity on brine shrimp. The brine shrimp are used as a model organism to examine the potential toxicity effects of nanoparticles.

Silver Nanoparticle Socks

Subject: Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science

Audience: High School

Students will synthesize silver nanoparticles and observe their antibacterial properties when applied to socks.
