Product Description
The preview file here is missing A LOT of information. The purchase contains all materials and maps.

This lab is SO much fun and such an authentic experience for kids.

It is based off of the water contamination case in Woburn, MA in the 1970's. This lab has a map of Woburn showing several well locations and the locations of the cancer cases.

Students must use their knowledge of water quality, point source/non point sources, aquifers, etc. to determine where the pollution is coming from and what can be done to stop it.

This lab requires some set up for the teacher, but once you set it up once, it is ready each year!

Students test actual water samples in this lab. They are testing acidity/basic substances rather than actual TCE. Awesome, awesome lab.
