U‐32 Students participate in VPT Emerging Science event
This winter, U‐32 Biology classes culminated a mini unit on Food Pathogens with a (LNV) live network interaction with Dr. Jane Hill of UVM. This project was a collaborative effort between U‐32, Vermont Public Television, and UVM. Vermont public television is in its third year of offering short videos of cutting edge science involving local scientists. The series is called "Emerging Science."
Students must complete a total of three credits of science to meet graduation requirements. Those planning further education should check the specific requirements for their prospective colleges or technical schools. Most four-year colleges prefer three or four years of science and most technical schools are looking for at least three years. For those colleges requiring two years of a “lab science,” this would normally be fulfilled by taking two semesters each of biology and chemistry. Each student’s present science teacher will recommend in writing the course he or she feels would best fit the student’s needs and abilities. For our ninth through eleventh grade courses, these recommendations are the only prerequisites for the various courses, and should be followed unless the student has discussed an alternative plan with both his/her TA and science teacher. For our twelfth grade courses, there are more specific prerequisites for the various courses, and these recommendations may be taken more as suggestions.
