Hands On Neuroscience Activities 2003 2004 Exploring Neuroscience Through the Use of Weakly Electric Fish Striped Drum Apparatus Students in the Lab Presented by The Sidwell Friends School 21st Century Biology Class Website http www 21bio org Email 21bio sidwell edu SIDWELL FRIENDS SCHOOL 21ST CENTURY BIOLOGY CLASS The 21st Century Biology class at Sidwell Friends School introduces student to scientific research and discoveries through hands n research projects Each semester students prepare for poster presentations and scientific conferences where they will display their research The class provides students with an interactive learning environment where they are as much apart of teaching as the teacher The students present research about the projects seminar style so that each student becomes specialized in a specific area of information while learning about the other areas simultaneously Research is gathered from numerous sources including scientific journals textbooks and scientists working in our fields of interest The relationships with scientists are particularly important in the class awareness of current discoveries The class eliminates grading base on tests and quizzes and is based solely on the students displayed activity in class Students are required to maintain a lab book containing research data observations and any other miscellaneous material related to the class Grading is based on preparation for class the details included in the lab book and the students displayed knowledge on the research 2 PHYSICS REVIEW Physics is at the heart of our study of electric fish from voltage to current to amplitude to wavelength the words and ideas that we use to learn about electric fish are all grounded in physical principles In this part of the workshop we introduce physical concepts provide analogies for them and relate these concepts and their analogies to our study of electric fish Voltage Voltage is also the electric pressure difference electromotive force
