A fun and challenging introduction to the practice of science. Your students will assume the role of research scientists as they make observations and propose a mechanism which explains the properties of the Mystery Tube
Research scientists frequently face the challenge of examining an object or organism without taking it apart. As your students first pull the cord on 1 end and the other end pulls into the tube, they may think the solution is easy. As they continue their investigation, they will be challenged to describe a model for the inner workings of the Mystery Tube
and provide supporting evidence to defend their hypothesis.
The solution is not provided.
Scientists must continue to design experiments and revise their mental model based on their findings.
3D Molecular Designs and the Milwaukee School of Engineering Center for BioMolecular Modeling continually develop and update lesson plans and other resources for our educational products. Teacher notes, student handouts and other supporting documents vary based on the applications and activities of the kit or model. We appreciate your feedback and encourage you to submit your own lessons, assessments and videos.
