Biology Students Study Cell Meiosis
Tanner Tavares '17, and Taj Gutierrez '18
In biology, students used old fashioned play dough and new fangled
technology to make stop motion videos representing the stages of
meiosis! These students know the difference between homologous pairs and
sister chromatids. They understand the reduction division necessary to
produce 4 haploid gamete cells from 1 diploid germ cell. Amazing!
