In this activity students will learn about UV radiation and their relationship with the human body. They will make a research to understand how UV levels vary during the day where they leave and among the world, through a collaborative data gathering platform (globallab), and will discover the level of awareness of their community regarding the benefits and dangers of UV radiation. Students will then make a series of experiments do discover what are the best ways to protect against UV radiation with the use of color changing UV sensitive beads and a UV level scale. Finally, students are challenged to create a final awareness campaign to share with their communities.

Teachers should purchase the beads before beginning this ILS. A link is provided where they can be purchased, however they can be found on Amazon too, using the keywords "UV beads".

This ILS was created with the support of Maria Celestina Henriques
