Modeling Mitosis Lab

This diagram represents the cell when it is in a stage called interphase. When a cell is interphase it functions as it normally should.           This diagram represents the cell when it is in a stage of mitosis called prophase. When a cell is in the prophase stage of mitosis, the […]

Edible DNA Lab

For this lab, we had to assemble (using candy) a DNA strand. The liquorice represented the back bones of the DNA strand, so the sugar and phosphate. The marshmallows represented the chemical bases, and each different marshmallow color represented a different one. Green represented Guanine, pink represented Cytosine, yellow represented Adenine, and orange represented Thymine. […]

Currents in the Kitchen Lab

Purpose: Which fruit creates the most electric voltage? Hypothesis: Previously posted in a separate post. Materials (fruits that were used): Orange Lemon Banana Potato Procedure: First each fruit was tested with 3V, and then with 15V, except for the potato that was only tested with 3V. Observations: When the fruits were tested with 3V, they […]

Electricity Mind Map

I wonder… How do electrical panels work? How is a static shock created, like when you touch somebody? What is electrical resistance? Electrical currents definition? More ways to conserve electricity? Voltage? How is electricity created? How do transformers, the boxes you see outside, work?
