This lesson offers students an introduction into biosensors, which is a sensor that uses a living organism or biological components to detect the presence of chemicals. In this activity we focus on bacterial biosensors made by manipulating the genetic code of a bacterium to change what they sense and how they behave or respond. Students will read articles and watch videos about bacterial biosensors to help them develop their own understanding of what a bacterial biosensor is and how it can be used as a tool to solve problems.
