The Development of a New Practical Activity: Using Microorganisms to Model Gas Cycling
Redfern, James; Burdass, Dariel; Verran, Joanna
School Science Review, v95 n353 p37-40 Jun 2014
For many in the school science classroom, the term "microbiology" has become synonymous with "bacteriology". By overlooking other microbes, teachers may miss out on powerful practical tools. This article describes the development of an activity that uses algae and yeast to demonstrate gas cycling, and presents full instructions to enable the exercise to be delivered in a classroom.
