I can think of several but one would be having the kids monitor the pH of a solution while having an airstone and pump oxygenating the water. THey would then plot the data and look for spikes. We could even connect a computer data collection system to a pH probe and collect data from a running aquarium 24 - 7 and look for pH fluctuations throughout the day and night.
I could go on and on, but am afraid I would bore you to tears.
As for a saltwater tank in the classroom - I've considered it. It would make a really great long term data collection project for the kids. Only problem is the summer time and what to do with the fish. I may still do it and stock it with a goby and a few chromis. These I could alwys bring home.
