DNA Extraction Lab
Mendel Monohybrid Genetics Lab
In this lab students are replicating the experiments of Gregor Mendel (the father of genetics). They will be growing multiple generations of plants and cross pollinating them to collect seeds for future generations. They will mathematically predict the ratios of certain traits in consecutive generations of offspring.
Cellular Respiration Lab
In this lab students used the Vernier CO2 sensors to measure respiration rate for germinating peas and for non-germinating peas to compare them and determine if germination has any effect on the respiration rate of seeds.
Animal and Plant Cell Lab
Artist Boat Kayak Trip 2016
On this trip students had the opportunity to observe and explore the wetland habitat of the Trinity river through a scientific perspective and an artistic perspective. Combining these to approaches allows the students to develop a better appreciation and understanding of the environment.
