Energy Meets Biology for Some Fantastic Results
Our fermentation BioBox helps students understand the concept of energy—specifically, how organisms access energy for biological processes. While most organisms typically use oxygen for energy, some of them don’t. Instead, they access energy through the process of fermentation. In these experiments, students explore fermentation through a practical lens. From their own bodies to fermented foods, they’ll discover just how essential fermentation is in their everyday life.
By the end of this BioBox, your student will address some critical questions about fermentation, and they’ll reach some interesting conclusions:
- What is adenosine triphosphate, or ATP?
- How does temperature affect the fermentation process?
- How do our bodies use fermentation?
- What foods do we make through fermentation, and how are they healthy?
