In this activity, students are asked to design a bacterial biosensor device on paper. Students are offered a scenario: they have a choice of two bacterial biosensors (lead and xylene detecting).They must create a device to house the engineered bacteria. The device should also make water testing easy for other high school students who have no cellular engineering experience.This is a great extension to the bacterial transformation activity and allows students to engage more deeply with the idea of a biosensor device and how it might function as a tool to solve a real world problem.
