ALL YOU CAN SPEAK IS ALL YOU CAN EAT

“La mousse au chocolat était la préférée de tout le monde,” high school French students might tell you about their recent field trip to Le Chambord in Hopewell. You don’t need google translator to sense just how fabulous a time they had.

 

“This was an afternoon of language, cultural, and culinary immersion,” said William Gunn, teacher for French 3, 4 and 5 classes. And the experience made a difference.

 

"The French restaurant was beautiful and the food was amazing,” Caroline Bell said. “This trip has made me even more excited about taking French 4 next year."

COLLEGE BIOLOGY 101: THE BODY AT WORK, 24/7

Posted December 14 at 8:06am

You pour some hydrogen peroxide on a wound and the liquid starts bubbling. What is that all about? Sporting their own lab coats, students in Kimberly Jordan’s college biology 101 set out to investigate this everyday chemical reaction and what it says about the human body.

 

If you read about the freshmen biochemistry lab, you will recall that most proteins are enzymes, and enzymes are behind the vital chemical reactions and processes that keep us alive. The enzyme catalase reacts to hydrogen peroxide by breaking it down to water and oxygen--hear the bubbling?

SCIENCE LAB SERVES UP SCRAMBLED EGGS AND CHEESE CURDS

Posted December 13 at 1:35pm

A freshmen class was given eggs and milk to work with, but this was no ordinary cooking activity. These simple, everyday ingredients were used to uncover the fascinating world of biochemistry to Kimberly Jordan’s freshmen biology students.

 

Eggs and milk are rich in proteins, a major category of bio-compounds. Proteins have a myriad functions in our body and are necessary for our survival, but they require constant, ideal conditions to do their job.

 

Students used the proteins in milk and eggs to test the effects of changes in temperature and pH (acidity levels). And that’s where the cooking comes in. The experiment served up scrambled eggs and cheese curds!
