Due to its abstract nature, cellular respiration can be a challenging topic for many learners. Give your students the opportunity to make real-world connections with two cellular respiration experiments! Our director of biology, John Melville, shares two simple strategies for teaching cellular respiration using hands-on experiments that you can easily implement in your class. In our first experiment, you will find out how to monitor the carbon dioxide and oxygen produced by germinating and non-germinating peas using our Go Direct® CO2 Gas Sensor and Go Direct O2 Gas Sensor. Next, you’ll learn how to demonstrate cellular respiration using yeast, a beaker of water, and our Go Direct Optical Dissolved Oxygen Probe.
