Important announcements for next week (4-8 July)

Guide questions for the lab activity may be found here. Thanks, Be’13! This is due one week after the completed lab activity. You may computerize or handwrite this on a sheet of short bond paper.

The digestive system HW (due on the first meeting of next week) may be found here. Also be on the alert for a quiz on tissues this week. 😀

The first Mythbusters proposal is due on Friday next week (July 8th).
A mythbusters team is composed of 6 members from within your section (you can choose your own team members).
Include the following information in your proposal:
  • Names of team members
  • Creative title
  • Myth/notion to be proven or debunked (must be related to either the digestive/circulatory/plant transport systems)
  • Scientific basis/procedures/processes to be used in testing the notion (experiment? demonstration? literature survey? interview with an expert?
  • 3 reliable references (scientific journals, printed materials)
  • Chosen medium (video/animation/presentation/poster/website)
You are encouraged to submit early. No two teams can have the same topic!
