Measuring The Power of the Sun
Students use an ultraviolet-sensitive yeast strain to measure the intensity of solar ultraviolet light on 2 separate days. This 6-station student kit familiarizes students with growing yeast, making serial dilutions, and using bioassays. It also demonstrates the damaging effect of ultraviolet light from the sun on living organisms and can be used to initiate discussions about the importance of DNA repair in preventing this damage.
