Discover the ecosystem dynamic, the significance of photosynthesis and the applications of fermentation.

What is an ecosystem? What interactions take place within it? What is osmosis, and how is it important to cell communication?

Biology in Nature consists of a series of experiments that aim to complement and enhance biology knowledge acquired in school, by promoting experiential learning.

In this programme the students realize the importance of water and its correlation to soil composition through filtering experiments. A qualitative experiment that measures the extent of photosynthesis is explored, and common misconceptions are dispelled. Finally, students familiarize themselves with microorganisms, their role in an ecosystem and the importance of their enzymatic reactions.
