Carolina Investigations® for AP* Environmental Science: Biomass to Biofuel Kit

6 Items Exclusive
$49.95 - $154.95 View Details

A Carolina Exclusive! This lab activity guides students in the design of their own experiment testing various pretreatments of grass to maximize glucose production that could ultimately be used to produce ethanol fuel. Students follow a guided activity to examine the effect of mechanical grinding on enzymatic digestion of cellulose. Student groups test experimental variables, such as pH, heat pretreatment, or some combination of these, to optimize the digestion of cellulose into glucose.

A Carolina Exclusive! This lab activity guides students in the design of their own experiment testing various pretreatments of grass to maximize glucose production that could ultimately be used for the production of ethanol fuel. Students first follow a guided activity to examine the effect of mechanical grinding on enzymatic digestion of cellulose. In an inquiry activity, each group tests its experimental variables, such as pH, heat pretreatment, or some combination of these, to optimize the digestion of cellulose into glucose. The 8-Station Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4. The 1-Station Kit includes materials for 1 group of 4 students.
