Grade level/band: 11–12
- This task provides students with an opportunity to perform guided scientific inquiry. Students will work with a partner or group to design and conduct an experiment to determine if a detergent containing enzymes is more effective than a detergent that does not contain enzymes in removing “blood stains.” Students design a qualitative experiment to determine the visual appearance of the stained fabric. At the conclusion of the experiment, students write an individual report summarizing their experimental findings. Students organize and apply their knowledge about the structure and function of biomolecules in a real-world context.
