Making the Carbon Cycle Visible

I am requesting the funds to obtain 7 carbon dioxide sensors for the purpose of hands-on, NGSS-based labs. These will allow students to “watch” the carbon cycle in action in both cellular respiration and photosynthesis—two of the most complicated things that we discuss in Biology A. This also links directly to the idea of global warming, and allows students to investigate human impact, while practicing using graphs and numerical data… and it is engaging!
