Catalase Enzyme

Grades 9-12 Performance Task

Contributed by: Oregon State Department of Education

Students will design and conduct an experiment to test their ideas about how to speed up or slow down the rate of an enzyme-catalyzed reaction. Students will have access to an array of physical and chemical factors that might influence enzyme activity. They are expected to predict how one of the factors might affect the reaction rate and test it in a high quality experiment.
