What's Going On in the Labs?
Irving Adame created a unique comic strip analogy of muscle contraction.
Students in Physiology were engaged in modeling muscle contraction.
Students in Mr Basile's Lab Biology designed and conducted their own experiments to identify the ideal environment for enzyme activity.
Students in Ms. Russell's Lab Biology class analyzing results for glucose in their macromolecules lab!
Miss Coyle's AP Chemistry students take part in a titration lab.†
Applied chem students in Ms. Johnson's class studied the law of conservation of matter performing experiments in an open system and a closed system and comparing the change in mass.
Ms. Garcia-Gordon's Applied Chemistry class performed a super saturation lab with a holiday twist. They shaped pipe-cleaners into winter shapes and soaked them in a solution of Borax, which allows crystals to form. They were able to take their pieces home.
Ms. Garcia-Gordon's Physics class participates in monthly engineering challenges. In December, they were asked to build bridges using only pennies.†
Mrs. Frasco's & Mr. Unitis'†Applied Biology students demonstrate their understanding of the unit's topic by competing in heated trivia competition.
Students used "Quizlet" to cooperatively answer questions accurately and quickly. The team that answered all the questions first with 100% accuracy won.
Mrs.†Frasco's class is working on a formal research paper, in which the students study scientific and medical breakthroughs stemming from experimentation with†HeLa cells. In preparation, students read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot and participated in online book discussions. This photo features them using the Media Center to gather and analyze scholarly information they plan to craft into their research papers.
