UV and Skin Lab
This design lab allows students to look at popular products that claim to protect you from UV and conduct an experiment to find out if they work. From price of sunglasses to brands of sunscreen, students design a guiding question and develop a lab procedure. The attached Numbers doc guides them through the steps of the experimental process and gives them a place to collect experimental results.
In my class, we use Pasco sensors to collect data on UV, but a less expensive version of this lab can be done using simple UV sensitive beads, available on Amazon.
Students design charts and graphs to display their experimental data and develop conclusions based on evidence and research.At the conclusion of the lab, students create a social media post to share what they have learned with others and then complete a portfolio reflection of their learning. Students use this template to submit their final product for assessment.
