Check out our students discuss the effectiveness of various hand washing methods along with their experiment designs (PLTW Module – Infection: Detection – Activity 2)
Students are currently working on their first Project Lead the Way Module: Infection Detection. It has been impressive the way that students have taken ownership of their learning and are holding each other accountable for work output using Canvas, and Google Drive.
Activity 1: Germs, Germs Everywhere
Students used “glow germs” and a game of heads up seven to replicate the spread of germs. We even had our very own patient zero.
Activity 2: Preventing the Spread
Students designed experiments to show the effectiveness of hand cleaning methods. Students learned the importance of having a “control” to validate their results.
