From Early Enrollment Biology

Students in Honors Early Enrollment Biology are investigating the impact of ocean acidification on marine organisms. By exposing clam, mussel and scallop shells to acid (vinegar), students can observe the physical changes and better understand the notion that when carbon dioxide dissolves in seawater, the seawater becomes more acidic and has a very negative effect on the shells of marine animals.

From Biomedical Science

This week in principles of biomedical science students worked on a blood typing lab. Students will use this information to help solve the mysterious death of the fictional Anna Garcia in class.

From Social Studies

Students in Current Middle East Conflict class have been conversing via email with Mrs. Seger‘s contacts in Turkey and France regarding the ongoing conflict between the leaders of both nations. They have been discussing the recent terrorist attacks, freedom of expression, freedom of religion and the use of boycotting as a form of protest. They were excited to hear the insights of people on the ground in both of these countries.

US History II

Students in US History II enjoyed a digital field trip to the National WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri. This experience expanded their understanding of how World War I is an important piece of global history and important to continue to study today.
