A hands on workshop for secondary school students on the pigments of polar cyanobacteria
  • Educators, Teachers
During IPY outreach activities for schools (ex. Printemps des Sciences in French-speaking Belgium), we have proposed a hands on workshop on the Thin Layer Chromatography of the pigments of polar cyanobacteria. The workshop was organized for twenty students of the 5th and 6th grades of secondary school (with a basic knowledge of photosynthesis) in a laboratory equipped with electricity. The polar cyanobacteria came from a culture collection that was built during a project of the Belgian Coordinated Culture Collection.
