The Chemistry students discussed the article that they will use next week for the school-wide write during which all students will write an essay regarding a prompt about fear. We discussed the possibilities of a North Korean nuclear attack on the west coast which, while possible within the next couple of years, is probably not very likely. Nukes are some nasty stuff.
The AP Biology students went over the techniques of genetically engineering an organism that are not only possible but are being used quite regularly. We also checked out a little of GATACA, a perfect movie about genetic engineering.
