Environment: Banana-in-a-Jar Experiment

Pupils conduct experiments using bananas sealed in jars to observe the effects on biodegradable waste in landfills. They cover the lid with a plastic sandwich bag to create an airtight seal. Students observe how the oxygen is used up, causing the plastic to expand as methane and carbon dioside are created in its wake.
