Niña and Pinta Ships
Our elementary classes spent a day in Tuscaloosa exploring the Niña and Pinta replica ships. These ships are “sailing museums,” and the students got to learn about these tiny ships that sailed over 25,000 miles. Additionally, the students got to explore the Museum of Natural History in Tuscaloosa.
The Freshmen biology classes went to the McWane Science Center to isolate their own DNA. They performed PCR and ran an electrophoresis gel to see their DNA fingerprints.
Anatomy students had the opportunity to learn about Huntington’s disease and explore the region of the brain it can affect. In addition to that they learned about the structures and functions of the eye.
