Enroll in Biology at ABLE and gain a deeper understanding of life’s complex processes. This course allows students to explore relevant topics such as DNA, cells, genetics, metabolism, and environmental issues while empowering them to make informed decisions and conduct research. Our weekly labs are accompanied by high energy lectures and games to enhance the learning done at home through videos and textbook readings. Our first semester is all about microbiology, where students experiment with calorimetry, DNA isolation, and microscopy. We also complete fun activities, such as taking virtual reality tours of the cell to create elaborate cell models representing the smallest structure of life! In the second semester, we dive into the relationships between organisms and their environment, offering a comprehensive learning experience over genetics, physiology, and environmental sciences. We experiment with EKG probes, conduct thorough pedigrees over "super taster" families, debate HIPPA violations, and analyze the ramifications of relevant environmental issues like ocean acidification and draught. Throughout the course, various careers are highlighted to provide students context for how they could work in the field of biology. We also apply our knowledge to diseases such as cancer, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, and cystic fibrosis. Don't miss out! Explore the wonders of the natural world and discover the secrets of life.
