How would you prefer to learn about cellular respiration? Would you want to watch a video, read about it, conduct a computer simulation, or stick an insect (cricket, cockroach...any bug will do) into a jar and see if it takes in oxygen and gives off carbon dioxide? And, which of the above activities do you think would most likely spark your curiosity?

For several years, the technology needed to measure gases has been too complex and fragile for use in middle school. Fortunately, a new probeware has been developed that is both easy to use and sturdy.

This project would put carbon dioxide and oxygen probeware in the hands of our Powhatan Middle School students, which would be a "game changer" in how our students learn about several science topics.
