Biology / Anatomy & Physiology Lab Intensive


(This is the lab intensive for standard high school level Biology) Some students attend only the Biology Lab Intensive or only the Chemistry Lab Intensive, and some attend both, the Biology and Chemistry Lab Intensives - they can complete them both in 3 intense but fun days! ----- Daily Schedule Biology First day, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm Second day, 9:00 am - 12:00 noon Academic credit: 1 year of Biology / Anatomy & Physiology Labs Student grade range: 7th - 12th Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites. Appropriate background information is presented prior to and during each lab that is performed. This lab intensive can be attended: - Before a student takes Biology - While a student is taking Biology - Or, after a student has taken Biology When taking Biology / Anatomy & Physiology classes after attending our Lab Intensive, the class material will be much easier to comprehend - because students already understand the application of what they're learning in classes. For students who have taken Biology / Anatomy & Physiology classes prior to our Lab Intensive, these labs will bring their book knowledge to life. Teacher: Greg Landry, homeschool dad and former college professor with over 20 years of teaching experience. Travel to intensive: Students may commute from home each day or families may find local overnight accommodations. Approximately 30% of families travel from over two hours away and spend the night near the intensive. The lab intensives are usually held in the meeting room of a hotel - typically Hampton, Homewood Suites, or Hilton Garden Inn. Lunch and snack breaks: We'll take a lunch break and morning and afternoon breaks. Students should bring a brown bag lunch, snacks, and a bottle of water. What is provided to students: As part of our Biology / Anatomy & Physiology Lab Intensive each student will receive instruction, all supplies, specifmens, a lab manual, apron, colored pens, and a certificate of completion. Who can attend: In the interest of students, our lab intensives are for registered students only - not parents, siblings, friends, etc. - What should you bring? A basic calculator (or phone), a brown bag lunch, snacks, and a water bottle each day. - Email reminder: We'll send you email several weeks prior to the intensive reminding you of the dates, time, and location. - Students will learn how to collect data appropriately and prepare and critique college-quality lab reports.
- Students will record their experiment data, graphs, etc. in their lab manual. We'll also discuss the critical importance of graphing to develop process reasoning and critical thinking skills that affect not only science but all aspects of life. - Students will learn to think critically and deeply about scientific processes. - We'll discuss what they need to know about high school academics and successfully handling college academics.. and how to relate to their professors and peers in college and beyond. We'll also discuss what they should be doing now to achieve their future goals! It's two days packed with learning, fun, and fellowship. Laboratory Topics Covered - We'll perform autopsy style dissections:
=> Sheep brain
=> Frog
- We'll do an experiment to quantify and study diffusion and osmosis - We'll isolate each students DNA as we study genetics
- Acid / base assessments will be performed
- Metric system applications to Biology and medicine
- We'll do blood type and Rh Factor determinations on each student.
- Students will construct and learn the critical importance of graphing.
- To study the respiratory system, we'll inflate preserved healthy and smoker's lungs to investigate anatomical and physiological differences
- Students will eat candy, etc. for breakfast to produce a "glucose load challenge" to help them understand the pancreas, glucose absorption, diabetes, normal and abnormal glucose response curves, and the production and function of insulin. (usually done in college level anatomy labs)
- Using stereoscopes and microscopes, we'll look at the microscopic aspects of life.
- We'll use Phenylthiocarbamide to study genetics
- We'll do experiments to study the cardiovascular system, anatomy, heart rate, blood pressure, hemoglobin saturation, etc. - Student's will study the muscles and bones. - Students will learn how to prepare and critique college-quality lab reports - Students will learn to follow detailed experimental procedures.
- And more. Real Life We'll discuss what they need to know about high school academics and successfully handling college academics.. and how to relate to their professors and peers in college and beyond. We'll also discuss what they should be doing now to achieve their future goals! I'll tell them cadaver lab stories and "real-life" life lessons from the college human anatomy lab. They'll work hard, laugh, talk about serious topics, have fun, and finish the lab intensive with a lab manual of data representing their work. "Greg, what a refreshing change it was to see all those kids having so much fun with high school science. And, it was so wonderful to get so much done in two days. Katie didn't know what to expect but loved the experience. She said you immediately put them at ease and the time flew by. In fact, her first question to me after the second day was if she could do another intensive. Science in our household has been reinvigorated - thank you!." Jenny
