Attic Items -- Item P010


Name: P010: Dried Algae Date: 1967 Location: box_A1

A bottle of dried algae. When I was in high school, I ended up taking Biology II, Advanced Biology. We needed a project. I took a 5-gallon water bottle, added chemicals to create a culturing medium and grew algae. I grew the algae in a set of Petri dishes to purify it and get only one strain, which was introduced into a water/chemical mix in the 5-gallon water bottle. After it had grown, I filtered it out and dried it. I think I tried using some as flour in a cookie recipe.
