Jekyll Island Podcast: The Maritime Forest and Boneyard Beach (VP)

Our 7th grade students spent last week on a science expedition on Jekyll Island, exploring the marine habit and ecosystems. Not only did they have a tremendous amount of fun, but they attended classes in the field, studying:

The depth of understanding acquired by our students by seeing, feeling, and holding first hand is difficult to match. Be sure to visit the Jekyll Island, 2007 blog at the Mabry Global Learning Collaborative. You will find hundreds and hundreds of pictures of the students in their classes.

While on the island, student created short video podcasts of their experiences. This podcast highlights the maritime forest, also known as Boneyard Beach.

Life Science Students Study Genetic Transformations (VP)

Our seventh grade Life Science students have learned about transgenics: the process of extracting genetic material from one organism and inserting it into another. In this podcast they clearly describe the scientific process of this experiment in which they extracted a DNA plasmid from a jellyfish and inserted it into the DNA of a bacteria. They grew this new microorganism in the lab, designing a new species of bacteria which manufactures a protein that fluoresces under UV light, indicating that the new DNA had been successfully inserted into the DNA of the bacteria.

Our students are getting an authentic look at how genetic scientists are using new technologies to create treatments (and hopefully someday even cures) for diseases such as diabetes, hemophilia, and sickle cell anemia to name a few.

Did you learn this in your 7th grade science curriculum?!

Most Eggcellent Eggsperiment (VP)

Seventh grade Life Science @ Mabry continues to rock...or, um... egg. As a part of this major unit on cells, students were learning about cellular transportation through osmosis and diffusion. The students used eggs to parallel or model an animal cell. For 6 days they added solutions of varying water concentrations to observe the effects on the eggs' mass and circumference. The eggs could lose or gain mass based on the properties of the solution in which they soaked.

Take just a few minutes to sense the eggcitement of learning in science!

Science Fair Winners

I am proud of our students who participated in the District Science Fair. We had a number of students who placed and earned recognition for their work. This enhanced podcast features some of the students (Jeffrey, Kaleigh, Skylar, Chris) who won an award. Each student briefly describes his or her project. Enjoy!

7th Grade Jekyll Expedition: The North End (EP)

I am at Jekyll Island with our 7th grade students. This field trip is just an awesome learning experience for our Mabry students. Be sure to keep up with the event "as it happens" at our Jekyll Blog, which features hundreds of pictures and important information related to the trip. This year we are even posting podcasts.

This podcast is a highly compressed version of the student class about the living organisms around the docks. Despite the drizzly rain, we had a great time! Click the icon below to download our podcast. Then open the file in iTunes to watch it!
