Hello TIME 4 Real Science Program Graduates!  We need your help!

You may know that we have continued the TIME program since your time with us and are currently operating as a school day honors science course with summer and after school components.  Students have done quite well with this model as they have more time during the school day to work on their research projects and find it easier to collaborate with their partners.  Please check out the links below to read a recent article about the TIME program and see our new video!

You may also know that we are entering our final year of funding and that we are exploring new ways of continuing the program.  One important aspect that we must consider as we move forward is YOU, our program graduates.  Funders want to know how the program impacted you!  We hope that you will complete the following survey to assist us in this endeavor.

Thank you so much for your TIME!  The program would not be what it is today without YOU!  Mrs. Williams, Ms. Patch, Mrs. Arnaudin, Dr. Wilcox

The journey begins

For our first year in the TIME class me and Jasmine decided to brave unknown territory. We both became interested in the subject of cancer and began looking at our own interests. After joining together we started down a path filled with articles upon articles about Molluscs, cancer, and carcinogens. We settled on the topic of cancer models in bivalve molluscs , and that’s where our journey began. We came to a slight dilemma, neither of us knew anything about clams, how durable they were, or how to care for them. We decided to order a “warm-up” group of clams. We wanted tnoaho learn how to care for them, Dissect them, mark them, and take their blood. We’ve drilled holes in them, marked them with fingernail polish, fed them algae tablets, and monitored their health daily. As of right now we’ve lost 3 of our original 22 due to our experimennoah1bts on how to take blood. When we finally expose them to our carcinogens, Glyphosate,ethanol, and chewing tobacco extract, they will be in a larger permanent containment. We look forward to our continued experiment throughout the year and we hope for spectacular results.
