Students will learn about acids and bases through a class discussion and then test a dilute acid and dilute base with neutral litmus paper to learn how the paper indicates something is acidic or basic. Once that skill is learned they can move on to test some common items that would be found around their house to determine if they are acids or bases. Optional: Extra litmus paper is included to test more items either from home or around the school building for a greater understanding of acids and bases. The activity contains enough materials for 6 groups of students.

Safety Data Sheet

In this lab, students will learn the basic structures and pathway of the digestive system and understand the different functions of the stomach and the small intestine in regards to digestion. They will investigate how the properties of different enteric coatings react in different sections of the digestive system. Next they will explore the purpose of an enteric coating and engineer a simulated "coating" most suitable for certain pharmaceutical needs. This lab was written by a Biomedical Engineer and has enough materials for 15 groups.® Includes Teacher's manual and student guide.
