Cellular Respiration in Algae Beds

Valor Biology and Honors Biology students have been hard at work observing the visible indications of Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration in algal beads. Students had to use their newly learned lab skills to set up algal beads in a carbon dioxide indicator and observe a color change. Students applied their knowledge of Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration to determine which processes was occurring after an amount of carbon dioxide was measured. The first picture shows students setting up their algal beads in the carbon dioxide indicator and the second picture shows the results of what students saw when the algae were performing Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration.
