Enzyme activity and rate of chemical reaction

School name: Bursa Şehir Koleji

Project title: Enzyme activity and rate of chemical reaction

Activity description:  In this activity, students were asked to present their work using the reaction’s reactants and other tools. Students experiments included the following topics:

  1. Rate of chemical reaction
  2. Enzyme’s activity
  3. Metabolic processes
  4. Biological catalysis
  5. Substrates and reagents

In this experiment students were able to see the reaction of catalase enzyme and its factors, which are:

  • Hydrogen peroxide, used as a substrate
  • A specific amount of dish soap
  • A specific amount of yeast which contains peroxidase enzyme

Fig.1 Shown here are students carrying experiments. Materials used in this experiment were: soap, yeast, and warm water. Students made sure the reaction was functional. They were asked to explain the importance of a biological catalyst.
