In this hands on student led investigation, students will test how different light wavelength affects the rate of photosynthesis.
Students will be able to visually identify pH changes made through the process of photosynthesis by using algae that has been immobilised in an alginate gel.
The kit consists of;
- 1 x vial containing 30 algal balls (Chlorella)
- 3 x empty vials (7mL volume) for experimental use
- 1 x bottle (15ml) of Hydrogen Carbonate indicator.
- 2 x plastic pipettes
- 4 x colour filters
- 1 x pH standards chart
- 1 x Student Guide and assessment questions
