Body in Action
Biotechnology - Examples of agar plates, with Escherichia coli and Micrococcus luteus
S3 are doing Animal Survival, so they have covered Digestion, working through Reproduction and then going to do the Urinary System and then how Animals respond to the environment.
S4 are on biotechnology, so they have designed an experiment to test what affect yeast has on dough, results coming soon, they have also been working with bacteria (safely) in particular Escherichia coli and Micrococcus luteus. See picture of their agar plates below. They also looked at the effect of antibiotics on the growth of bacteria. They have been looking at how the brewing and cheese making industries rely on micro-organisms. They are going to finish off by doing some work on how genetic modification (GM) happens.
