Witch's Brew

Middle School

workshop

 

Students will explore Beer-Lambert Law of absorption and concentration as they race to save someone who has been mauled by a zombie and is now infected with Zombiase, a lethal toxin.  In the Chemistry lab, students will use equipment to collect and organize data, make and interpret scatterplots using lines-of-best-fit, and derive conjectures in this problem situation. By analyzing infected toenails of zombie bite victims, they can determine if a serum can be administered in time to save them. Can your students save the victim from certain torture and death?
