Level 1

EXPLORING OUR WEATHER

Become a meteorologist! Master reading a weather map, study weather patterns and pressure changes, and create a barometer. Examine wind and wind speed, and create an anemometer. Explore different types of clouds and witness how they form by creating a vapor cloud in the blink of an eye! 

MOLECULE MADNESS

Electrons, protons, neutrons what's the difference? Explore atomic theory, and make sense of the periodic table. Use the elements to build models of molecules using what you discover about molecular bonding. 

 MICROSCOPIC DISCOVERIES

Peer through a microscope and bring a new world into focus! Journey into the invisible microscopic world by preparing, staining, and mounting your own slides and identifying the stages of plant mitosis, all while mastering the functions of a microscope.

SURVIVOR: PLANT EDITION

What do plants need for growth and survival? Conduct a light/dark experiment, study plant nutritional needs, and predict the effects of acid rain.

Level 2

ABCs OF ACIDS, BASES, AND CONCENTRATION

What is the acid concentration of your favorite drink? Use titration to find out! Determine the proper indicator to use, and design and execute an experiment to calculate the molar concentration of acid in a beverage.

DELVING INTO DNA

Journey through the discovery of DNA and its structure. Gain an appreciation for the double helix, base pairing, and the nature of genetic inheritance. Use biological detergents, enzymes, and ethanol to isolate DNA and understand the role of DNA and proteins in genetic expression.

UNDERSTANDING GENETICS

Principals of Mendelian genetics will be explored and tested. Simulating monohybrid and dihybrid crosses with chips and dice, patterns of inheritance will be established by calculating genotypic and phenotypic ratios for select traits.  

 SOIL SCIENCE

Evaluate soil samples and conduct soil
composition tests. Investigate the local environment and gain an appreciation for earth science while recognizing the complexities of nature right under your feet.

Level 3

VOLTAIC CELL WARS

Choose your own combination of materials for anodes and cathodes to create electrochemical cells. Compare and contrast the use of a salt bridge to the use of a semi-permeable membrane in the cells. Compete to create the most voltage, and then rise to the challenge of designing a cell to run a small motor.

MECHANISMS OF MOVEMENT: OSMOSIS & DIFFUSION

Compare and contrast the two processes of passive transport - diffusion and osmosis. Create an environment to promote osmosis and, using colorimetric analysis, test the movement of a solute across a semi-permeable membrane.

 YEAST: A MICROBIAL FUEL CELL

It's good for making bread, beer, andelectricity? Investigate the electron transport chain of yeast, then use a mediator to harvest those electrons in an attempt to generate an electric current in a simple cell. How much electricity can living organisms generate?

CONCENTRATING ON ACID-BASE CONCENTRATIONS

Calculate the acid or base concentration of two unknown substances by performing a series of titrations. Using a buret and pH meter, construct a method to collect quantitative titration data to determine the concentration of each substance.
