Biochemistry Classroom Kit
During the Full Summer 2022 registration period, teachers may register for the chance to receive a Kemtec Science: Biochemistry I classroom kit. Once the Full Summer registration period closes, one teacher is chosen at random to receive the classroom kit including professional development information.
This kit was designed to introduce students to the chemistry of living things and relate biochemistry to everyday life. Includes five basic biochemistry experiments in which students use chemical methods to test for proteins, carbohydrates and lipids, use Pepsin to digest protein and Ninhydrin to detect amino acids, test the activity of salivary amylase (both in vitro and in vivo), develop a technique for determining ascorbic acid concentration and use it to evaluate the vitamin C levels in substances, and determine of the alkalinity of acidity of foods. A great exploratory or introductory experience is gained by performing the test procedures. Ideal for students in biology, general science, or biochemistry courses. 50 registrations for the drawing will be accepted. Kits will be mailed to teachers mid-May.
