News from Emily’s Class

March 5, 2014

The new semester means new science courses in the high school: Chemistry and Cells & Genes. The Chemistry class began by looking at the scale of the universe from galaxies to electrons using powers of 10, while reviewing the scientific method and metric conversions. We also discussed the origin of matter in the universe and examined matter in different states by boiling nitrogen, condensing oxygen and freezing carbon dioxide! The Cells and Genes class has learned how to use light microscopes and examined onion and skin cells, as well as plenty of random things around the classroom for fun.
