AP Biology Research Presentation (May 13, 2022)
This year, our AP Biology classes have been working on a yearlong research project, analyzing how the life cycle of mealworms is affected by the consumption of styrofoam. We were funded this year by the NY Academy of Sciences Scientist in Residence (SiR) program, and a group of students will present our research to SiR scientists from across the city. These students chose to make a video of this presentation instead of presenting live, and they worked really hard with me to analyze our data, write a script and other materials for the video, record it all, and narrate it, all while also preparing for our AP exam this week!
2022 Spring Arts Showcase (May 12, 2022)
Yankees Game (April 28th 2022)
On Thursday April 28th, 50 seniors attended the Yankees vs. Orioles game at Yankee stadium! We had a lot of fun with Yankee fans in the bleacher section, enjoyed the sunny day, and ate our way through a lot of buckets of fries! Some even caught some stray baseballs while the players were warming up!
Trigonometry Project (April 7, 2022)
History: The clinometer is a tool used by plumbers, miners, sailors and many others to measure angles of elevation. The clinometer was invented in 1989 and is still used today to measure the heights of objects that difficult to measure.
Purpose: In this trigonometry project, students constructed clinometers using protractors, straws, paper clips, a small weighted object and string. They worked in pairs to indirectly measure the heights of tall objects in the auditorium such as the balcony, windows, and projector using trigonometry.
