This lab class explores photosynthesis, one of the basic biochemical processes in plants. We will talk about why plants cannot live in the dark, and consider whether the intensity of photosynthesis can be measured using satellites in Earth orbit. Through hands-on experimentation, we will isolate the biological pigments in plants, find out what kind of light they best absorb, and see what happens to chlorophyll under ultraviolet radiation. We will also carry out the Hill reaction on chloroplasts we isolate on our own. There will also be a chance to work with a fluorescence microscope, the discovery of which earned a Nobel Prize in 2014.
The classes are conducted only in Polish.
