Sixth grade science students acted as paleontologists and dug up fossils, identified and recorded them as they found shark teeth, trilobites and crinoid stems.
Ninth grade biology students practice pipetting and loading DNA into wells for gel electrophoresis. They also extracted DNA from their cheek cells using Gatorade, dish detergent and ethanol.
They attempted to stuff a 5-foot piece of thread into a small centrifuge tube to demonstrate how difficult it is to fit all of the DNA into the nucleus. The students used critical thinking skills and figured out by coiling or spooling the thread (DNA), they were able to fit it into the tube.
Physics students are learning to use ticker tape timers and dynamics carts as they prepare to study the Law of Conservation of Momentum during elastic and inelastic collisions. Physical science students performed experiments exploring Newton’s Laws of Motion using spring scales, carts and inclined planes. Special thank you to science coach, Mrs. Shelley Wood, who works in coordination with science teachers to plan and implement multiple labs each week for our students.
