You Say Potato, I Say Potatoe

This week in Mrs. Gullberg's  Biology lab, students looked at the role of an enzyme as a catalyst. They looked at the reaction of hydrogen peroxide decomposing into water and oxygen gas by measuring the foam that the reaction creates. 

Using the enzyme Catalase found in potatoes,  they were able to make the reaction take place.  The students observed how when an enzyme is heated up, it no longer functions because it was denatured.
