Description:

This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological Society’s 2008 Frontiers in Physiology Program. For more information on this program, please visit www.frontiersinphys.org. This lesson on surface tension will introduce students to the steps of the scientific method by conducting a guided-inquiry experiment, presenting their data, and then taking the information that was learned and, as an open-inquiry lab, designing an "organism" that will not break the surface tension of water. Key concepts include surface tension, experimental design, data analylsis, and drawing conclusions.
