Why do I need to know this?

That question can often be heard in the classrooms of Solon High School.  Our staff is quick to not only answer, but give students real-life, authentic learning experiences.

In the first video, students are using bubbles to investigate the permeability of cell walls.  This lab further demonstrated the properties of cells and cell membranes and gave the kids a hands-on learning experience.

In a Project Lead the Way course, students used computer programs to evaluate the effectiveness of their robots.  This measured energy consumption, speed, and other factors.  Students were analyzing the data.  

Finally, Spanish students were speaking to students in Mexico through Edmodo, an online and educational social media tool.  This allowed our students to have authentic speaking experiences with native Spanish speakers.
