Bio students study molecular structures

The students in Erica Everett’s honors biology class work in teams to further their understanding of molecules and assemble structural models of carbohydrate molecules.

Students received a worksheet/guide to help them examine molecules and construct their own structural formulas.  A molecular formula shows the amount and types of atoms, and a structural formula does the same while also shows the layout of the atoms in a given molecule.

Sophomores Jake Brugger and Spencer Feurbach assemble two models of monosaccharides, or single sugars.  Molecules of different monosaccharides have the same amount of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms, but they differ in their structural formulas.

After constructing their molecules, sophomores Tracy Blagden and Julia Prziek answer guiding questions on their worksheets.  The students studied the formulas of glucose, galactose, and fructose, which are all simple sugars found in various foods.  Credit: Lillian Schrafft for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online

Field Hockey Celebrates Their Seniors

On Tuesday October 21st, the varsity field hockey team had their senior night. They celebrated their seniors for their tremendous hard work and commitment to the team for the past four years. In this game they faced the Ipswich Tigers and ended the game with a tie of 0-0.

Before the game starts the team warms up doing a variety of passing, dribbling and shooting drills to get ready for the game. The team has a new motto each year, and this year’s is “Why Not?’. Credit: Phebe Biggar for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online

STEM class builds Syrian refugee housing models

Students in art teacher Caroline Epp’s Industrial and STEM design class built model Syrian refugee homes during the architecture unit. This year, Epp’s class is not just industrial design, but the students will be working on html/css coding, data visualization, and user experience design as well.

Freshmen Evan Osterman and Marc Sears glue a side on to their refugee house. Before starting to actually build the structures, the students researched what materials would be a best least expensive fit for the houses. They also completed research questions about the Syrian crisis. Credit: Kara Hersey for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online

Chemistry Class Completes Soda Lab

On Friday October 24, 2014, a sophomore and junior chemistry class performed a lab on the sugar content in different types of sodas. Chemistry teacher Keith Gray gave the total sugar amounts in 8 ounces of each soda and the students had to figure out the correct amount of sugar in 10-mL of the sodas.

The chemistry class accomplished a lab that determined the sugar content in four sodas. These sodas were cola, ginger ale, orange soda, and grape soda. Credit: Gillian Guerin for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online
