Our school is a non-profit public Charter School. We believe that deaf and hard of hearing children can and should succeed. Our bilingual learning environment recognizes the students’ distinct language and culture while promoting strong ASL and English literacy skills. Our school has a high performing educational program based on rigorous curriculum and research-based teaching strategies. We offer a wide range of programs from preschool through high school.
Deaf science students are incredibly curious and are very observant learners.
The science classroom is a great place for students to follow their curiosity and passions to better understand the world around them.
Genetics is a topic that always starts conversations like, "Oh yeah, my dad has a widow's peak, but I don't, weird huh?" or, "My blood type is A- and my mom's is A+ and my dad's is B-." While those are great genetics-related conversations, I want to allow my students to dig deeper and use some of the more advanced technology available to them. Biotechnology is an exciting opportunity and will open their eyes to what's available, to help them better understand the world around them.
With a gel electrophoresis kit, and a whale DNA "fingerprinting" lab, my students will be able to isolate and better understand DNA by running it through the process of gel electrophoresis, which allows them to analyze similar and dissimilar DNA segments and understand genetics traits, or in this lab, paternity.
