This spring, AP Biology students at Wendell Phillips Academy High School weren’t reading textbooks and taking quizzes, they were using investigative lab techniques to solve a genetic mystery. The students spent three weeks exploring the science behind (and the implications of) modern genetic testing.
Science in Society has embarked on a new adventure: offering in-school programming! We’re partnered with Mather High School in West Rogers Park, Chicago, to support incoming freshman with science and learning skills during the transition to high school. The first cohort of students has named themselves Science Explorers.
Ten students from the bio-art class at Evanston Township High School (ETHS) in Evanston, Illinois, visited Northwestern University in February as part of a collaboration inspired by Science in Society’s annual scientific images contest.
From electron microscopy to the all-you-can-eat buffet at Sargent Hall, 60 Evanston Township High School (ETHS) students got a chance to experience life at Northwestern when they visited the university last week. The students from Ms. Jenna Paplaczyk’s Biology with Support classes learned about authentic scientific research when they visited two advanced imaging facilities and two research lab spaces.
