In science class today, second year students had to design a poster showing the effects of global warming.
In first place was a poster showing the Statue of Liberty, the Millenium spire and the Eiffel tower before and after a dramatic sea level rise.
In second place was a poster showing a polar bear on a very small ice berg surrounding by sea water.
And in third place, a poster showing the Earth, in the form of an icecream cone, being turned upside down.
Students in 5th year managed to get very nice results in their experiment to determine the optimum pH for celery catalase activity.

When conducting your experiment remember these important points:
After you have finished your experiment remember these important points:
Bish 5th year Biology students conducted a basic gel electrophoresis experiment today.
They used food colouring in glycerine rather than DNA samples.
