This activity builds on the first physarum chemotaxis experiment. This iteration of experimentsis a process that scientists and cellular engineers engage in regularly. Using computational thinking, students look for patterns in data from the first experiment, generalize that pattern to from a hypothesis, design an experiment to test that hypothesis, and consider possible scenarios (or outcomes) of their experimental design. As students have already had an experience with physarum, this activity is more open-ended, leading to more creative questions and experiment design.
