Exploring Photosynthesis and Respiration (UMass Amherst) (CANCELLED)

This event has ended. We hope to see you at a future event. See upcoming events here: https://www.massbioed.org/events

Do you want fun labs to investigate photosynthesis, respiration, and enzymes? Learn how to create algae and yeast balls by encapsulating algae or yeast in sodium alginate. Then use the model system you’ve created to study photosynthesis, respiration, and enzymology through a series of student-centered investigations.

Participants will receive student lab protocols, teacher instruction manuals, and curricular support resources to implement these labs in the classroom. This workshop qualifies for 10 PDPs based upon completion of the designated assessments.

Note our New incentive program.   Schools can earn $200 to spend at Fisher Scientific for participation in two or more BioTeach workshop. Incentives begin with the second workshop attended. Details of the incentive program will be sent to anyone registering for a BioTeach workshop.
