Fun with Enzymes

In this activity, the high school students will design and carry out a procedure to observe and understand how enzymatic reactions are affected by different pH levels, different temperatures, and various substrate and enzyme concentrations. This lab can fit in nicely with a unit on biochemistry or macromolecules. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to understand how pH, temperature and concentration affect the rate of a reaction, make solutions of different enzyme and/or substrate concentrations, and understand the importance of physiological pH and enzymes.
