Inquiries in Science®: Energizing Cells Kit

(in stock)


  • Explore the relationship between cellular respiration and photosynthesis in plants
  • Understand how cells use an aerobic or anaerobic process to generate energy
  • Design and perform scientific investigations

Grades 9–12. Using aquatic plants, students explore the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration by testing for the presence of carbon dioxide in water. They then apply their knowledge and design an experiment testing factors that might limit or improve the rate of cellular respiration in yeast. Kit includes enough materials for at least 30 students working in groups. Receive a FREE digital Teacher's Manual and Student Guide with kit purchase.

Note: Elodea is restricted from shipping into certain states. Restricted states will be shipped Elodea canadensis, Elodea najas, or Chara, depending on availability. Canadian customers must apply for a Canadian Department of Agriculture permit.
