1. BIOLOGY EXPERIMENT
Title: “Exploring Enzyme Activity”
This experiment was performed by biology teacher, Msc.Esmeralda Kararaj, assisted by 11th graders. In this experiment we can see how enzymes speed up the rate of a chemical reaction to help support life. They help perform very important tasks in our body, including but not limited to: destroying toxins and breaking down food particles during digestion.
In this experiment students were able to see the reaction of catalase enzyme and the factors that affect it, which were:
Hydrogen peroxide, used as a substrate
A specific amount of dish soap
A specific amount of yeast which contains enzymes
This image demonstrates moments from this biology experiment.
2. 3D MODELS
Title: Construction of teaching tools
Figure 2 displays the most important organ of our body, kidneys.
Figure 3 displays a 3D model of the human’s excretory system.
Students were asked to create a 3D model of kidneys and explain the anatomy of this organ.
They should be able to determine parts of the anatomy of the kidney.
Cross section of the kidney
3D model of human’s excretory system
This image shows a 3D model of the female reproductive system. Students were asked to create this model during the pandemic and explain the structure of it from home.
3D model of cell division (Image presents 1 of the 4 phases, Telophase)
Figure 5. This image shows one of the phases of cell division, telophase. Students were asked to create a model of telophase and explain the structure of it.
3D model of the Two Cell Types
This image shows a prokaryotic cell. Students were asked to create a prokaryotic cell model and explain the structure and function of each part.
This image shows a eukaryotic cell. Students were asked to create a prokaryotic cell model, explain the structure of this cell and the functions of each organelle in it.
3. CHEMISTRY EXPERIMENT
Building a galvanic element using lemon as the battery
This experiment was performed by chemistry teacher, Msc.Blerina Lazaj, assisted by 11th graders.
Students built a battery (galvanic element) composed of:
Aqueous solutions (lemon)
As a result of the directed movement of electrons from the anode to the cathode, electricity is generated and the lamp lights up. Students were surprised at how easy it was to create a galvanic element without being engineers.
Constructing pasta bridges and learning the outcomes of it.
This experiment was performed by physics teacher, Mr. Ervin Myftaraj, assisted by 11th graders.
To demonstrate the dependence of the weight exerted by the tools on the flexibility of the bridge students constructed bridges with pasta.
1. Vehicles that pass to exercise the minimum weight and the arch of the bridge to bend from above.
2. The center of gravity of the bridge should be as close as possible to the supporting base.
Title: Building the Keplerian Telescope, Kepler’s most popular invention
Students were able to build the Keplerian Telescope and derive the characteristics of the example given by it. They found this project enjoyable as they had received knowledge regarding this topic in class, and stated that this project made them feel like revolutionary scientists.
