Another great day of inquiry in biology!

In biology, students are seeing the effect of osmosis on cells (the shell less eggs). 

And then they asked, "Do you think you can hard boil a shell less egg?"

Amazingly enough, yes you can!

Macromolecule Lab in Biology

This week, biology students learned how to perform tests to indicate for the presence of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, & nucleic acids; the chemicals of life. We ended the 3-day lab with testing food/drink products for these macromolecules. Next week they will learn how the cell makes and/or used these macromolecules.
