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.
