Students in Biology used swabs in partnership with Pathomap and followed scientific sampling procedures in order to collect samples about bacteria in public areas to practice for their upcoming experiments. Students also visited the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility to discuss with experts how bacteria are used in the real world.
Students in Physics created a visual display of their work related to their group's particular investigative factor (e.g. reference point, distance VS displacement, speed VS velocity, catapults, walking velocity experiment, catapult projectile velocity experiment or sports projectiles velocity experiment).
Students in Climate Change mapped (using GPS and USGS flooding maps) the Red Hook neighborhood to better understand the impact of Hurricane Sandy and the potential dangers of sea level rise. Students captured their data using different tech apps (Travel Altimeter Lite, Current Elevation, Elevation App, Endomondo).
