Tyger Invite at Mansfield Malabar

Science Club

The science club had a winter tree identification course.  Winter tree twigs and trunk cross sections were collected from various local tree species.  The students first learned about tree and seed growth and twig, trunk, bark, and stem anatomy and physiology.  Using a hand lens and dichotomous key, students used their skills to identify the trees in winter conditions.  Upcoming club events will include a tree seed analysis.

To help biology students study DNA, students extracted DNA from a live strawberry.  Strawberries are a good specimen for analysis because they have 8 sets of chromosomes.  Students were amazed by the extraction process and actual DNA results.  The DNA and process of extraction would be similar for humans. 

Graphing Muscle Contractions

The anatomy and physiology classes studied muscle physiology this week.  Students were testing their grip strength in a friendly "strong man" competition.  Using Vernier technology, students could graph their twitch, treppe and tetanus muscle contractions as well as the force of their contraction. Pictured are the female and male high scorers in the class.
