Period 1-2

We completed our first practical to explore the relationship between diffusion and cell size by experimenting with model “cells.”

Those are the instructions on how to prepare the agar solution. As a first experiment, I do not give any written instructions to my students. We have a 10 minute briefing and then they have to come up with their own experiment. They are not used to that kind of freedom in a lab and it gives them a taste of what the experiments in biology will be like.

They have their first attempt at completing a full lab report.

Period 3-4

Ever had that crazy dream of actually being able to interact with other users who are surfing at the same time as you on the same web page?
It’s now possible.

I found this software from the company weblin. After you have created an account and installed the software on your computer, you select a character that will represent you and every time you surf on the Internet, you will see at the bottom of your screen a figurine representing you.

Now if someone is on the same web page as you while you’re surfing, you can engage in a conversation.

If you decide that you don’t want to be visible to the other users anymore, a simple right click on Weblin will do.

Give it a try.
