Biologists forge ahead with A Level investigations

Last week’s Biology Project Day enabled 6.1 students to forge ahead with their A2 Biology investigations to complete this part of the A2 Biology course before September. The investigations are designed and carried out individually and are as varied as ever. Questions that will be answered this year include: “does a magnetic field affect algal growth?”, “how do oxygen levels affect the behaviour of pond snails?” and “how do fertilizers affect soil bacteria?”. The Biology labs were buzzing with activity and the 6.1 students are to be congratulated on the excellent progress they made.
