(in stock)

Description

Grades 9-12.

  • Learn about alcohol fermentation and the role of enzymes
  • Investigate the ethanol production process with enzymatic digestion
  • Use scientific methodology to compare yeast fermentation of different concentrations

Students apply scientific methodology to investigate enzyme digestion of cellulose and yeast alcohol fermentation in the presence of different concentrations of glucose. They then generate a standard curve to determine the concentration of glucose in solution. After understanding the reactions taking place, students discuss advantages and disadvantages of various sources of ethanol. Kit accommodates a class of 32 students working in 8 groups of 4 and includes a voucher to request the perishable material later at your convenience. Contact us or return the voucher at least 2 weeks prior to requested delivery date to ensure prompt arrival of material.
