Looking for a lab to connect biochemistry to the real world?
The Crunched Caterer is a narrative-based lab that asks students to use their investigations to save a caterer's big event. The apples have browned, and the caterer needs advice to prevent it from happening again! Students investigate the effect of 4 conditions on phenolase activity. They collect qualitative and quantitative data, using a color chart (many are available for free on the internet), to find a solution. This activity is designed as an introductory lab for college prep or middle school Biology classes. Content could easily be adjusted to add rigor for honors classes.
