This program is divided into a sequence of laboratory demonstrations that investigate fermentation using sugars, determine fermentation rates through carbon dioxide output, quantify the action of yeast in bread, measure microbial growth, use an enzyme to peel an orange, employ saccharification to sweeten starch, and use yeast cells to generate electricity. Core laboratory competencies such as how to set up an experiment, titrate, and estimate numbers of cells are introduced, as well as background information on enzymes, aerobic and anaerobic environments, and the interdisciplinary nature of science.
