STEM SCHOOL: BIOLOGY III - MASTER (8 classes)



High schoolers get hands-on in biology with a variety of labs and experiments designed to challenge and inspire their thinking about the living world! They'll engage in experiments each week and learn proper microscope use, how to make slides, molecule identification, cell differentiation, photosynthesis and much more! All of our STEM School series classes are designed to compliment state standards being taught at home.

World Solutions

Let's solve some world problems! Each week we look at different biological challenges and allow students to come up with solutions that make our lives - and planet - healthier.

Week 1:

Gram +/- Bacteria.
Students conduct a lab to study gram positive and gram negative bacteria by utilizing various stains.

Week 2:

Fleming's Discovery.
Students learn the history of and engage in an experiment to retrace Alexander Fleming's famous experiment that discovered penicillin.

Week 3:

Antibiotic Resistance and Evolution.

Week 4:

Plastics.
Students learn the importance of recycling and engage in a lab to create a bio-degradable plastic.

Week 5:

Biofuels & Soap.
Students will study lipids, leading to two labs for home-made fuel and soap.

Week 6:

Electrophoresis.
How to separate chemicals by molecular weight using a 3D printed gel comb.

Week 7:

Water Pollution Analysis.
Students analyze various water samples under a microscope, engaging in a game to guess who's water came from what source; introduction to a basic Python program to analyze data.

Week 8:

Air Pollution Analysis.
Students collect air samples using particulate plates from various locations in the prior week and then analyze the samples using microscopes; data is plugged into basic Python program.
