High school science continues to inspire complex thinkers and innovation. Just this past week, grade 9 investigated factors that may affect catalase’s ability to break down hydrogen peroxide in pig liver. You can read more about this on each of their blogs. Grade 10 has been analyzing Mendelian genetics by “reproducing” 100 times to generate a sufficient amount of data to compare genotypic and phenotypic ratios of the offspring. The grade 11 IB Physics students have been investigating many wave phenomena such as standing waves, polarization, diffraction, Doppler effect, and resolution. They have been designing their own investigations. Inquiring into factors that affect an aspect of a standing wave and finding a way to determine the wavelength of laser light using diffraction are just a couple of examples of the amazing work our students are able to produce as independent learners.
