Looking for resources to teach a lesson about mercury contamination?
The Schoodic Education and Research Center at Acadia National Park might have the resource you need.
Much of the center’s assistance to science classrooms in recent years has focused on involving high school students in research into mercury contamination with University of Maine researchers. The results from some of this research, with University of Maine researcher Sarah Nelson, are pending publication.
