Biology

Mrs. Lockhart gives a thumbs up to Biology teacher, Nicole Erfurdt's, project on Cells and Organelles. In the make believe world of Eukarya, the cell was experiencing unrest because the people of Eukarya were unhappy with their current leader, the Nucleus. So, students selected an organelle of their choice and ran a political campaign for that organelle. This included election speeches, posters, flyers, websites and Twitter feeds. The Cell Organelle Election Project helps students to learn about the different organelles found within cells and the function of each.

Spanish

Two level one Spanish students (Ashley Adams and Rohin Raju) used their Spanish skills with students, Kevin Soto De La Cerda and Ramon Malave, in order to create a reference poster for the Quest teachers. These posters had key words and phrases that they could use during instruction.
