Homework Help: Hydrothermal Vents

  1. Sep 22, 2010 #1
    I have to devise a lab about hydrothermal vents for my high school biology class, but everything that i've thought of is impractical and cannot be done in a classroom. I was just wondering if you guys had any ideas.

    Maybe something involving chemosynthesis?

    Just stumbled across this on a google search for Hydrothermal vent lab activities. Wondering if you managed to come up with something, or if any of you classmates had a neat idea. This is a hard topic to come up with hands on activities for, and usually don't come up with anything cooler than showing Planet Earth or some other footage and moving on.

    We didn't think of anything specifically for hydrothermal vents. My group ended up doing an experiment with chemosynthesis.

    What chemosynthesis experiment did you do?
