Macromolecule Metabolism

My students need enzyme solutions and chemical indicators to help them gain an understanding of macromolecule location, function and digestion.

My Students

As an International Baccalaureate candidate school, our school seeks out global challenges and problems for solution. Our students gain substantial experience in critical thinking, problem-solving, and global mindedness. Our integrated projects go deep and allow students to insightfully discover and understand universal concepts in traditional subjects.

Our science students are inquisitive and compassionate thinkers.

They seek truths, speak out for injustices, and do not back down from challenging subjects. We are looking forward to an exciting year during which students can get their hands dirty through innovative challenges!

My Project

Our school is dedicated to providing exciting and challenging scientific experiences to students. It is my goal to make this year extremely hands-on, allowing for students to make real-world connections and suggest innovative solutions.

One of the most instrumental ways of creating this atmosphere is through rigorous and practical laboratory experiments.

Without these, science exists strictly in textbooks - BORING! With these chemical indicators and enzyme solutions, students can visualize the digestive processes, in addition to learning about them through textbooks and scientific literature. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the 4 essential macromolecules, which will continue to serve them as they advance through biology and chemistry courses.
