High school biology students recently participated in a lab experiment that simulated a post-hurricane environment that challenged them to find ways to purify drinking water. Over several class periods, students designed and engineered water filtration systems with the hope that the pond water used for testing would end up clean. Although very few groups produced the desired results, students realized what can be learned when experiments do not go as planned.
