Woodchip Bioreactor Station Activity

In this activity, students use various forms of data to determine the relative effectiveness of several woodchip
bioreactors. The results from gel electrophoresis (DNA fingerprinting), water quality sampling, and general
information about the bioreactor are used to do this. Students visit four different stations (bioreactors) where they collect relevant information about the bioreactor’s activity and effectiveness in removing nitrates from flow-through water.
