The Cell Theory Rap
Overview:
The cell theory is one of the basic principles of biology.  The discovery of the cell was not possible until the invention of the microscope. Credit for the formation of this theory is given to Theodor Schwann, Matthias Schleiden and Rudolph Virchow. The cell theory states the following:1) All living things are made of cells, 2) cells are the basic units of all living things and 3) all cells come from existing cells. The students used iPads and Garage Band to create a rap song about the cell theory.

Dauphin Island Sea Lab Field Trip
Overview:
This podcast gives a brief overview of our field trip to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.  This incredible weekend excursion provided 35 8th grade science club students a chance to explore a barrier island, view marine life hands-on, and study ecological and evironmental elements of the Gulf of Mexico.  The students participated in several activities such as trip to the local estuarium, a boat trip on the sea lab research vessel, a salt marsh trip, shark dissection, and a plankton study.  The students learned a tremendous amount about the Gulf of Mexico and Dauphin Island.  The trip was amazing and the students still talk about it today!
