Assessing Toxic Risk
Developed by the Cornell Environmental Inquiry Program, Assessing Toxic Risk consists of a student edition and teacher's guide designed to enable high school students to carry out authentic research. Using organisms such as Daphnia, duckweed, and lettuce seeds, students conduct bioassay experiments to test the toxicity of environmental samples and chemical solutions. Assessing Toxic Risk was published by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and is available at 1-800-277-5300 or http://store.nsta.org.
