This is a basic lab activity that challenges students to use the scientific method to test adsorbent materials to determine which material would be best suited for a water filter. The lab maybe appropriate as an introductory lab to the scientific method, as a lab on the properties of water (usually one of the first units in a biology course), or as a STEM engineering challenge.
