Cave of Dogs Pilot Project

Dog with quizzical expressionThe Cave of Dogs, (in Italian Grotta del Cane, literally “Cave of the Dog”), poses a science mystery for students to solve.   A real cave, located in Italy, people can enter the cave and move about freely without trouble, however, small animals, such as dogs, will pass out and die in the cave.

What can be causing this strange and terrible effect on small animals that humans are immune to?!  There are two exams in this course, one for pilot participants to take prior to experiencing the pilot program activities, and the second to take one week later, after the experience.  Enjoy your science mystery exploration!!
