DRIVING QUESTION: How do bacteria act in the real world, and what factors impact their behavior?

This three part investigation explores biofilms (part 1), diffusion and the diffusion constant (part 2), and diffusion of antimicrobials (part 3).  An extension is provided to investigate how we can use the diffusion constant to find molecular weight (part 3 extension). Included for each subunit: 5E lesson plans with detailed teacher instructions, slides, and handouts. Additional slides are also included on bio-prospecting.

This module was developed by Professors Vernita Gordon and Alexandra Eusebi, at the University of Texas, Austin, with funding provided by the National Science Foundation, Division of Civil, Mechanical, and Manufacturing Innovation, award number 1727544, to Vernita Gordon.

If you use any part of this module, please send an email describing your experience to Professor Gordon,
[email protected]. Please include the approximate number of students taught. Documenting the use and effectiveness of this module will help us to obtain more funding for outreach and education in the future. We would love your feedback!
