Vacuum Packing Students??

"Vacuum Packing Students in CHS???"    ...April Fools!

Badres Andres experiences atmospheric pressure inside a trash bag.  Badres was one of 10 chemistry students that experienced the effects of "vacuum packing".  We are accustom to the atmospheric pressure in our everyday life but this "demo" allows the students to feel what atmospheric pressure is all about!!  Don't be shocked if your 2nd semester chemistry students wants to "vacuum pack" his/her siblings or parents.

In Mr. Bradley’s third block anatomy and physiology class, we have been learning about the anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular system. Along with the blood typing lab, we dissected a pig heart. We have been reading and listening to lectures about how the heart works, the different valves and vessels, the circulation but there’s no better way to learn then to dissect something and see it for yourself.
