Description:

This article, published in the "ABCs of Teaching Analytical Science" series of the journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, describes a project-based lab in which students investigate the distribution of Pb and As (from pesticides) in a contaminated apple orchard. Students have complete control of the lab, from designing a sampling strategy to using the primary literature to develop procedures for extracting the analytes and for their subsequent analysis by ICP-AES or ICP-MS.
