The Secret to Cooking: A Lesson on Enzyme Activity

The purpose of this laboratory exercise is to allow 9th grade high school students to explore whether temperature is the only factor that will impact enzyme activity. Students should have a basic understanding of enzyme structure and general function. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to develop and conduct a scientific experiment and explain the effect temperature and various chemical reagents have on enzyme function.
