Students will have:
  • worked on an open-ended collaborative design project based on multiple sources of information
  • gained insight into the peer review process
  • gained a knowledge of gas properties and applied that knowledge to an authentic problem

Additional gas law simulations are available at the following sites:

The design challenge can be extended to exploring the atmospheres of Venus, Mars, or other planets and moons.   NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies is an excellent starting point.
