Biology students enjoy hands-on learning in the lab
Biology students are studying the effects of different concentrations of solutions on the movement of water into and out of animal and plant cells. Eggs, which were soaked in vinegar overnight to dissolve the shells, were used for animal cells.
Students compared the egg that was placed in corn syrup, which lost water, and the egg that was placed in distilled water, which gained water. Cork borers were used to obtain cylinders of potatoes (plant cells). The potatoes were placed in different concentrations of salt water.
Students Brynlee Hawthorn, Izabel Whaley, and Eli Thornton measured the salt and the water to create the different salt solutions.
Student Roderick Graham observed onion cells in regular water and onion cells in salt water under the microscope to identify the cell membrane moving away from the cell wall as water moves out of the onion cell and towards the salt water.
