Biology Workshops

United States

 

Inviting all incoming 8th/9th graders to come get an intro to Biology in a fun and interactive way!

Through the Ekal Club at Wilton High School in Connecticut, we are proudly starting our own education initiative to help fund our collective initiative with Ekal in India and Nepal. Our club here in Connecticut will be running a series of programs and classes in the final weeks of this summer, to foster a great learning environment and prepare students for topics that will be very important in the coming years of their educational journeys.

Our main goal here in CT this year is to raise awareness for Ekal in any way we can, and our campaign this year is a creative and fun way for students to not only learn more about biology and other topics but also Ekal itself and its mission. The goal for this campaign is to raise funds to sponsor 1-2 schools this summer and hopefully, we are able surpass our fundraising goal!

This Biology Workshop is for incoming eighth and ninth graders and will give an introduction to the basics of biology at a high school level. At the end of the one week course, students will be able to sufficiently understand: 

  • The Chemical Basis of Life
    • Types of Chemical Bonds 
    • Water Properties
  • The Molecules of a Cell
    • Organic Compounds
    • Macromolecules
  • Parts of a Cell
    • Nucleus + Ribosomes
    • The Endomembrane System
    • Energy-Converting Organelles
  • Energy Harvesting Cycles
    • Cellular Respiration
    • Photosynthesis

Classes will be held from August 16th - 20th

Timings: 11 am EST [classes will be about 60-75 minutes]

Note: There will be homework assigned due the next day
