#NSTA23 – Why Are Oysters Dying and How Can We Use Chemistry to Protect Them? Using Chemistry to Solve ESS Problem
October 26 @ 12:20 pm - 1:20 pm PDT
OpenSciEd HS’s reversible reactions unit on ocean chemistry has three unique foci: 1) engineering, 2) math with scale, proportion, and quantity, and 3) relevance to students. Students use stoichiometry and acid-base reactions to make sense and design solutions to prevent oyster die off.
This unit supports students as they figure out understandings of reversible reactions through explaining changes in ocean chemistry to engineer solutions to prevent oyster die offs. Participants will see how students build these ideas and develop mathematical thinking throughout the unit.
