Budding biologists often ask how scientists know what they do about different topics. In the lab described here, they have a chance to find out first-hand about the requirements for photosynthesis. Three sequential investigations are included to test the roles chlorophyll, light, and carbon dioxide play in the process of plants creating starch. In the analysis questions following the experiments, teens also think about the role of water in photosynthesis.
