Author: Sam Jayakumar Washburn High School, Minneapolis, MN based on the suggestion by Nave, R. in Surface Tension, Sep 17, 2006 Author Profile Interactive demonstration and guided inquiry, activity where students will understand the basic nature of surface tension in liquids. The first part of the lesson involves the demonstration and will make students think critically about the phenomena of surface tension and correct any misconceptions. The second part will allow the students to develop their own hypothesis, propose a procedure, gather data and analyze it to come to a conclusion. Jayakumar, S..

In this hands-on, inquiry-based chemistry lesson plan, students create the raw material for cement out of seawater and car exhaust, mimicking a physiological process used by corals that is inspiring more sustainable concrete manufacturing in the real world. The lab is safe, has been aligned with standards from AAAS's Benchmarks for Science Literacy, can be conducted within one-to-two 50 minute periods without specialized scientific knowledge or equipment, and uses inexpensive, readily available materials.
