Overview
This module explores computational thinking in science by examining what would happen to various ecosystems if mosquitoes were eliminated. Students will design, create, and test food web models to determine what impact, if any, removing mosquitoes will have. Students will participate in a Socratic Seminar to decide whether it is safe to remove mosquitoes from the world and to support their positions using evidence.
