Schools: Science Experiments, Business Competition

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory DNA Learning Center  is working with the elementary school students in the Cold Spring Harbor Central School District on chemical reaction science experiments.

CSHL educator Kelly Eames visited with sixth grade students in Kevin Craine’s class in Lloyd Harbor Elementary School showed how studens how to make apple juice and cheese.

Students conducted two experiments placing applesauce in cups, adding pectinase to one, pouring both into filters then collecting pulp while extracting juice. The results were measured and compared to see which produced the most apple juice.

Making cheese from warm buttermilk was the second project. Eames incorporated not only the scientific results of liquid separation but expanded upon the history students have been
studying on nomadic tribes. The experiment showed the chemical reaction of emporase, observing how enzymes cause the milk to curdle into clumps of curds or cheese, and the remaining liquid becomes whey.

A tree representing New York State and set out near the National Tree at the White House is decorated with ornaments designed by third-grade students at Maplewood Intermediate School.
