This activity utilizes the simulation provided by KScience. It allows the students to control several conditions around an Elodea plant. The students can adjust the light intensity, light color, water temperature, and carbon dioxide concentration. The virtual lab has the students run a trial in which they test the affect of temperature. In the second trial the students can either test the carbon dioxide concentration or light intensity. Each trial includes a hypothesis, data table, graph, and summary.
This virtual lab was designed as a template for classes that are 1:1 with netbooks.
