Digestion! Digestion! Digestion!

$40

with Dani Dulli

Calendar Dec 16, 2017 at 9 am

Have you ever wanted to explore the human body from a hand’s on approach?  In this course, students will discover the Digestive system of the human anatomy through experiments and creating models. This is an opportunity to learn the organs of the digestive systems and why it works in our favor. We’ll also introduce the scientific method, lab rules and etiquette, and the use of various lab equipment. For all those future Human biologists, this is the class for you!

Marine Dissection

$40

with Dani Dulli

Calendar Jan 10, 2018 at 9 am

This workshop really is designed for that budding biology lover!  Through this dissection workshop, the student will observe and investigate two very different marine animals; a starfish and a perch!!  How are these animals different? How are they alike?  In addition to examining the animals’s anatomy, we will introduce basic biological concepts such as adaptations, habitats, and the differences between vertebrates and invertebrates. Students will analyze their observations to determine if an animal’s adaptations are different based on their habitats.  This workshop is a mini-diversity animal class that will allow your budding biologist a chance to grow in their scientific knowledge and understanding of the animal kingdom!

Calendar Feb 24, 2018 at 9 am

Your students must find out who took the school mascot before the big game! In this cross-curricular investigation, they examine a note, some strange-looking leaves, a mouth guard, and some white fibers that were left at the scene. After fingerprinting the culprit, students stage a trial. Activities include analyzing DNA results; using dichotomous keys to identify selected plants; and analyzing various pieces of evidence using scientific experiments.

The Case of the Murdered Mayor

$40

with Dani Dulli

Calendar Jan 27, 2018 at 9 am

Needed! Crime Scene Investigators to use their observational skills and deductive reasoning  to solve the crime! Students will attempt to determine the prime suspect from a pool of six alleged perpetrators using forensic techniques. CSI agents will analyze evidence such as fingerprints, hairs, tire tracks, blood types (using synthetic blood), and forensic entomology.

The Working Arm: Human Biology in Action!

$40

with Dani Dulli

Calendar Jan 24, 2018 at 9 am

The human body is an incredible machine! Come learn more about the skeletal and muscular system and how they work together to keep us on the go! We’ll learn about the bones and muscles, their function, and how they work. We’ll create a model arm to demonstrate the form and function. Join us for this fun hands-on class! Students will leave with a better appreciation of how their amazing bodies work!
