Sponsor A Family 2018

H and M, its that time of year again!

It is time to give back to our community and start collecting items for Sponsor a Family.

We need some committee leads to help organize this big event as well as the party.

You will find a little snowman to the right of this post that has a link to the kids we are buying gifts for. Find your class hour and table color and coordinate with your table what gifts you want to buy, maybe even make a chart to make sure you cover everything on the list!

In addition to gifts, Meijer, Kroger and other grocery store gift cards are much needed for meals during the holidays!! We are hoping to collect all items by Monday, December 17th so we can have adequate time to fill in any gaps. We will wrap these gifts and deliver them on Friday, December 21st.

In addition, this year we are adding Hygiene/ Toiletry baskets/boxes. We will compile boxes of detergent, soap, shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, feminine hygiene products(pads, panty liners, etc) and fabric softener, in addition to any other hygiene products that could be useful to the families that they may not have access to. These we will put together on Wednesday, December 19th and delivered to the schools to be handed out to the families in need.

Thank you for all your donations, lets make this year the most successful yet and show these families love!

 Note that all of these food labels represent foods consumed by Anna the last days of her life.

Please start Activity 2.2.2: Food Labels.
Please take notes in your Biomedical Science Journal.

HBS Act 2.2.2 Secret to Signals. What is a neuron? vs How is a neuron specialized?

  • main function is to insulate the axons (the long slender projection of a nerve cell that conducts electrical impulses away from the neuron's cell body or soma) almost exclusively in the central nervous system in the higher vertebrates
  • The multiple layers of wrapping of oligodendrocytes around the axons of the central nervous system forms the mylein sheath
  • The “feet” of a single oligodendrocyte can extend its processes to 50 axons, wrapping approximately 1 μm of myelin sheath around each axon
  • can form a segment of myelin for several adjacent axons
Schwann cells
  • perform a similar function in the peripheral nervous system
  • can wrap around only one axon
  • there are two types: myelinating and nonmyelinating

PBS 2.1.2 Research how insulin controls glucose uptake by cells

CW: Research how insulin controls glucose uptake by cells:
ie., how insulin allows glucose to enter cell

  1. Make a simple drawing (cartoon) of how a signal molecule may bind to a receptor protein.
  2. Research how insulin signals a cell to take in glucose from the blood. Use the Internet or other resources to find information. Take notes in your journal. Record all the information from each of the sources you use so you can properly document or cite it later. Make note of sources with especially good diagrams or pictures.
  3. Choose 1-2 good sources of information that include diagrams, pictures and/ or interactive diagrams from the resources you examined. Properly document each of these sources, and under each documented source write an explanation of why it is a legitimate and reliable source of information about insulin and its effects on cells. Use additional paper if necessary.
You and your partner build 3D models based on your drawings and research.

An excellent resource is this website in here.

PBS Act 2.1.1 GTT PreLab Glucose Tolerance Test

Glucose tolerance test
The glucose tolerance test is a lab test to check how your body breaks down sugar.  The most common glucose tolerance test is the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).
Before the test begins, a sample of blood will be taken.   You will then be asked to drink a liquid containing a certain amount of glucose (usually 75 grams). Your blood will be taken again every 30 to 60 minutes after you drink the solution.
The test takes up to 3 hours.
