The Chant

A pungent smell saturates the 700 hallway as Zoology students dive into dissecting a frog. Students receive hands on learning experience as they watch their textbooks come to life before their eyes. This dissection enabled students to enrich their understanding of an organism's internal organs.

	Senior Rachel Maxwell looks in horror upon one of the typical AP style questions in AP Physics 1, dealing with rotational motion. The problem requires students to look at the situation conceptually, and only deal with variables and not numbers. This skill takes practice and shows up on the AP exam quite often.

Mr. Evans’ Oceanography class dove into studying the shark’s anatomy by dissecting one in class. Students cut and examined parts of the shark to further visualize what helps the shark function, instead of looking at a textbook. “The dissection helped me because we are learning about the shark, but pictures and diagrams do not really help. Seeing the real thing helps you get an inside of the topic,” junior Priscilla Peterson.

Mr. Evans’ AP Environmental Science class learned about ocean acidification through a demo lab. Students discovered how the acidification process worked underwater by blowing carbon dioxide into seawater. The carbon dioxide in their breath  reacted with a chemical in the water and changed its color.

Biology teacher Sue Aughey started a genetics project that allows students to see the passing down of traits close up. While students study Mendelian genetics, they plant flowers in red solo cups and see how the traits affect the the color of the flower. This beautiful project blooms and gives the outside walkways of NC a pop of color.
