The chemistry students watched me make butter today but more importantly they learned why whisking cream continually will produce water and unsalted butter. It's the breaking down of those phosolipid membranes that surround fat that does it. We also talked about carbohydrates and their molecular and structural formulas.
The AP Biology students watched a little of Outbreak, a movie showing what would happen if a hemorragic fever ever became airborne. Now that is scary. But you know what is more scarier? That people are choosing not to vaccinate their children because they think it causes autism. THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THE CLAIM THAT VACCINES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR AUTISM!!! TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
