Sunscreen Data: Consumer Power Mini-project

Students explore a consumer database that catalogs almost 1500 sunscreen products according to human and environmental safety. It was just updated for 2020! Join us for this 30-minute demo and receive materials in OER format (Google docs), making them modifiable by teachers. Best for strong readers Ages 12-13 and students Ages 14-16. Science, Math & STEM teachers welcome. We'll cover:

  • Connections to EM spectrum, waves, absorption spectra, consumer power, global regs & expert guidance on sunscreens
  • Related student reading tasks (active reading)
  • Student queries in the database
  • Guided activity with sections for whole-class, individual and partner work
  • The data-driven decision making (consumer power) students will practice
  • Related Sustainable Development Goals (#TeachSDGs)

We are now accepting on-demand requests from teachers & schools
