2018 - Anatomy: Muscles and Nerves

December 2018 We ended the semester studying the muscle and nervous system. The students learned that if the environment changed, our integration (brain) would tell us how to react and move our muscles. In lab they made a dead frog jump and were surprised to see how fragile our brains were!

SY 17-18 As the year comes to an end, we finish up our Anatomy class reviewing all of the systems. The students take 2 weeks to dissect cats and review the function and location of all organs. The company that we buy these cats from obtain them from ones that would have been euthanized at the ASPCA. They start with the external features and work on the cat until they have gone as deep as the veins and arteries (which are dyed blue and red). At the end of their dissection, the same group must do a practicum (group test) and identify all organs that are pinned. ​

They have been corresponding with some of our own students since September, and on Tuesday, March 6th, they accompanied their VRHS penpal to their classes. The French students also gave presentations about their country, city, high school, and culture to VRHS students who are learning French. The exchange students have been going on cultural excursions during the remainder of their visit. They will be flying back to France on Friday, March 16th. The friendships formed will continue as our VRHS host students will journey to France this summer to visit with their new French friends.

These students worked to create fashion designs for a runway presentation using only materials that have been saved from the trash can. The purpose for the students is to consider how market forces and consumer demands generate waste or enhance sustainable markets. Along with their product, they also created a fictitious trash clothing brand, made a logo and described how they might market their product. We will be concluding the project with a high fashion runway challenge to be judged by popular vote and panel judges recommendations.

They also looked specifically at the Bowman's capsule that helps to filter our blood. So they had to "make" their own urine to see the how the filtration process worked. ​

Then we looked at blood spatter, angle and shape of blood. The more circular the blood shape, the closer to 90 degrees!

December 2017 The AP Calculus students showed their creativity while also optimizing the maximum volume of a box. Each student was given a different set of dimensions from a piece of poster board. They were then asked to come up with a theme for it. I am very proud of how they thought “outside of the box “ for their themes. To celebrate their hard work I also provided snacks while they looked at projects to determine the class favorite (Mama’s red curtain pulled to reveal a piano with lights around the stage). I am so proud of my seniors and I cannot wait to see what they do in the future. Sarah Triplett

On day one, students kept track of successful bean bag throws and answered questions regarding a players probability of hitting the board. This helps them learn how to make "safe bets" on future endeavors and how to weigh different options. On day two, students measured the boards and found the probability of hitting in the hole. They were surprised at how unlikely it was! Pictured below are students from Mrs. Garmon's and Mrs. Stoyles' classes. All students did a great job and had a great time! ​

Forensics Students Study Hair and Fibers

February 17, 2017 Last week we finished up our Forensic studies on hair and fibers. The students examined hair under the microscopes and took note that most humans do not have a medulla, but other animals have patterns in their medulla. When we started on fibers, they had to make their own dye out of cochineal bugs (used for Montezuma's red robes!). They dyed a strip of material made of several fiber types. After it dried, they observed the absorption of the dye. Then they burned the fiber to determine smell, flammability, and ash type. All of these characteristics can help a forensic scientist determine the type of fibers (and hairs) found at the crime scene.
