While I think the example given for Bio, the antibiotic activity is interesting, - I think the overall cost of this activity and the is prohibitive and the time involved is significant. I wonder whether the team would consider set up time and cost into their rubric in future. I think many bio teachers would be better served seeing an example that could be done using regularly available lab equipment that supplies available at the grocery store.
