Microbiology offers a unique understanding of the variation and adaption of organisms right in your classroom. Microbiology is also a key method used in industry and environmental sciences to detect and evaluate biological risks.
Students learn about how organisms have adaptations to abiotic factors. Students will grow bacteria on petrie dishes, expose them to different conditions and observe changes.

EDVOTEK 304 - BIOFUEL FROM ALCOHOL FERMENTATION - $149 + GST
YEAST FORGE APPARATUS - $145 + GST
Ethanol fermentation is a common biological process widely used in industry for its diverse applications (food, liquor and energy). In this kit, Saccharomyces cerevisiae is used to break down sugar into ethanol. The conditions that are controlled with mechanical devices are aeration and temperature. The pH, bacterial growth, and ethanol production are monitored using specific probes over a period of 5 hours. Probes not included.
EDVOTEK 956 - BIOREMEDIATION BY OIL EATING BACTERIA - $199 + GST
Oil spills cause devastation to the environment killing sea life, birds, and coastal plants. Spraying areas of contamination with oil-eating microbes accelerates the degradation of the oil. This process is known as bioremediation. In this open-ended experiment, students will grow a mixture of oil-eating bacteria and observe their effectiveness at degrading a variety of oils.
