Science 7 and FACS collab alert! This week in both Family and Consumer Science with Mrs. Becker, and Science 7 with Mrs. Payne-Smith and Mrs. Yu, Pembroke 7th grade students had the chance to experience the effects of sugar on yeast. What did we learn? FACS: Yeast is what allows dough to RISE! Through the process of fermentation, yeast releases carbon dioxide gas, which you see as bubbles in the dough. The sugar in the dough is involved in this process. Check out the photo of the dough immediately after it was made, and 24 hours after it sat. The dough takes up much more space after 24 hours as a result of all of the carbon dioxide bubbles that have formed. We can use yeast to make all sorts of dough---from fresh baked bread to pizza dough! SCIENCE 7: Mixing yeast, sugar, and water together models the flow of energy in an ecosystem. Organisms need energy to reproduce. Sugar is what we call an energy storage molecule. The yeast consumes the sugar for energy. We tested the effect of different amounts of sugar with yeast and water. The cup with the most sugar (C) produced the most carbon dioxide. What did we learn overall? The more energy storage molecules available to a population, the more the organisms in the population can reproduce. We will continue to use this knowledge when discussing food webs and changes within populations. Great job this week, 7th grade!
The Primary School Kindness Crew performed their Friday act of kindness by decorating the East Pembroke Post Office windows for the holidays! Great job!!

To assist us in this process, please answer each question below and follow any additional instructions provided for submitting or returning the survey.
