What's Going On in the Labs?
Ms. Ryan's Lab Biology students were engaged in a "hands-on" activity modeling enzyme function.
Students in Mr. Basile's Lab Biology class are measuring results from an experiment they designed themselves!
Students in Ms. Russell's Lab Biology class analyzing results for glucose in their macromolecules lab!
Mrs. Frasco's Applied Biology students demonstrate their understanding of the unit's topic by competing in heated trivia competition.
Mrs. Frasco's AP Biology 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.
Mr. Basile's Applied Chemistry students determined the specific heat of unknown metals in a calorimetry lab.
Mr. Stelling's Honors Chemistry class conducted a station lab investigating intermolecular forces.
Ms. Johnson's Applied Chemistry class studied the law of conservation of matter by 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.
Mr. Basile's Applied Chemistry students modeled molecular geometry based on VSEPR using balloons.
PhysicsMs. Garcia-Gordon's Honors Physics class participates in monthly engineering challenges. In December, they were asked to build bridges using only pennies.
Students in Mr. Basile's Physiology class diagnose patients and identify organ systems affected in a "A Day at the Clinic"
