Here are experiments our science specialists have selected to support the IB* topic.

Sugar Fermentation by Yeast

Experiment #24 from Investigating Chemistry through Inquiry

In the Preliminary Activity, you will use a Gas Pressure Sensor to monitor the pressure inside a test tube as yeast metabolizes glucose anaerobically. When data collection is complete, you will perform a linear fit on the resultant graph to determine the fermentation rate.

After completing the Preliminary Activity, you will first use reference sources to find out more about sugar fermentation by yeast before you choose and investigate a researchable question dealing with fermentation.
