Water Quality Testing I (Edvotek)

The objective of this experiment is to use chromogenic reagents to test simulations of water samples contaminated with known bacteria. As an extension, students will apply this test as a field activity to screen local bodies of water for the presence of coliform bacteria.

Water Quality Testing II (Edvotek)

In this experiment, students will monitor water quality by using the Polymerase Chain reaction to detect the presence of bacterial contamination.
