Getting educated about enzymes
Amy Rishell teaches high school biology at Bluestem High School in Leon. After attending the Seed to STEM summer workshop, she and her students grew and dissected corn in the classroom. Rishell said, “The students really liked being able to see the inside of the corn—even the ones whose families grow corn learned new things!”
Rishell’s class also completed the corn fermentation in a bag lab, which they found educational and fun. Rishell said her students commented, ”Oh, that’s what enzymes do!”
“Attending the Seed to STEM workshop made me a more confident teacher when completing labs,” said Rishell.
