Biochemistry Happens Inside of You!

In this four-part activity, learners explore how the body works and the chemistry that happens inside living things. In the first activity about molecule receptors, learners use their sense of smell to identify common substances. Next, learners locate examples of the structures made from different kinds of proteins on their body and cook an egg to examine protein folding. Then, learners dissolve sugar in water to discover the best conditions for the stomach to dissolve food molecules the fastest. Finally, learners test foods for carbohydrates (starch) and lipids (fats). This guide is part of the "Passport to Chemistry Adventure" kit, but the kit is not required to properly facilitate this activity. (less)

In this activity (page 32 of PDF), learners investigate the nutritional needs of healthy bones and muscles. Learners make a list of their diet from the past 24 hours, sort what they ate by food group and serving size, and calculate their calcium intake. This activity will teach learners how to make good food choices, especially in terms of getting enough calcium. This guide includes background information, extensions, and handouts. (less)

In this activity about the relationship between food and energy (page 5 of PDF), learners conduct an experiment to compare how much energy is released as heat from two different foods. This activity introduces learners to the concept of "calorie" and allows them to compare the relative amounts of energy in similar-sized portions of a carbohydrate-based food (oat cereal) and a food rich in oils (pecan). This guide includes background information, setup and management tips, a link to a NASA Connect online episode, extensions, and a handout. Note: this activity involves an open flame; learners should wear goggles and conduct the activity on a nonflammable, flat surface. (less)

In this activity, learners follow a recipe to make hollandaise sauce. Learners discover how cooks use egg yolks to blend oil and water together into a smooth mix. In chemistry, this mixture is known as an emulsion. Substances like egg yolks that assist with emulsification are called emulsifiers. (less)

" "What people do with food is an act that reveals how they construe the world." - Marcella Hazan, The Classic Italian Cookbook If you are what you eat, what are you? Food is at once the stuff of life and a potent symbol; it binds us to the earth, to our families, and to our cultures. In this class, we explore many of the fascinating issues that surround food as both material fact and personal and cultural symbol. We read essays by Toni Morrison, Michael Pollan, Wendell Berry, and others on such topics as family meals, eating as an "agricultural act" (Berry), slow food, and food's ability to awaken us to "our own powers of enjoyment" (M. F. K. Fisher). We will also read Pollan's most recent book, In Defense of Food, and discuss the issues it raises as well as its rhetorical strategies. Assigned essays will grow out of memories and the texts we read, and may include personal narrative as well as essays that depend on research. Revision of essays and workshop review of writing in progress are an important part of the class. Each student will make one oral presentation in this class." (less)
