In this activity, students are asked to make a bioreactor containing an immobilised enzyme and use it to produce lactose reduced milk. They then assess the effect that temperature has on the enzyme driven reaction within the bioreactor.
For her research, Veronika looked at how pine cones close when the weather is wet and open when it is dry. Pine cones do this to give their seeds the best chance of flying far away from the tree so that they can grow into new trees far away. In the rain, the seeds will not fly as far and will end up competing with...
