Grade 12 biology students learned about mitochondrial replacement therapy during their weekly Hot Topics Presentation, in which groups of students summarize and explain a recent scientific article. After learning about mitochondrial replacement therapy’s procedure and risks, the class participated in activities where they simulated the replacement process.
The grade 12 chemistry class conducted an experiment to find the rate law of the reaction between sodium thiosulfate and hydrochloric acid. Students determined the reaction rates by observing how quickly the mixture became cloudy. A second experiment was completed to determine the effect of temperature on the reaction rate as well.
