How Do Toxins Bioaccumulate?
Data analysis and presentation
You and your peers will design a phytoremediation experiment using fast-growing plants.
You'll then analyze and graph your experimental data and communicate your findings in a formal research report. In the process you'll learn all about plants, cells, food chains, and phytoremediation.
You might even make a new discovery!

Need to Know Question:
Around the world countries are finding their soil, air, and water are polluted from the byproducts of manufacturing and consumer society. This is a threat to human health and the sustainability of our ecosystems. We need scientists and engineers who can solve these problems.
This unit will help you develop expertise in creating a testable hypothesis, collecting data, using expert guidance, and writing a research document.
Here's the path you'll follow to complete your project.
Setting up the Experiment
Review expert feedback on your research design plan
Set up your experiment with the fast plants
Experiment with photosynthesis in a test tube
Test your respiration with a clothespin
Explore carbon and nitrogen cycles
Transpiration and Water Cycle
Learn how water moves through plants
Explore transpiration computer simulation
Build a model of your local watershed
Photosynthesis and Respiration
Present your findings to class
Take unit post-test
How can we use plants and other living things to remove toxins from our environment?
