Keeping the environment chemical free is very important for the survival of plants and animals. Now you can learn how to test the soil and water in your backyard, school grounds or nearby forests and streams to see if it’s safe for the animals living there! Through various experiments, the Eco Forensic Laboratory teaches you how to find out what your soil is made of, how to test the acidity of soil and water and to see what kind of microscopic bugs and critters are living in it. To discover this, you will get to use exciting inventions such as pH strips and microscopes, along with the science of evaporation!
The instruction guide has colourful diagrams to show you how to complete each of the experiments. It also gives you a great survival tip to purify water in the wilderness and fascinating information about soil and water, such as the positive and negative points of acidic soil. The kit is portable, so you can easily conduct testing wherever you go making it a perfect kit for anyone interested in the ecosystem!
