Story

Why invest in Cathedral’s science program?

Your investment in Cathedral’s science program provides our students with an expanded knowledge base of the world around us. Understanding our world through a scientific lens will equip our students to be better problem solvers and will open up numerous opportunities for them.

Our science curriculum inspires our young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and medicine. Currently we have a number of alumni who are in college becoming engineers, nurses, and marine biologists, all because of our teacher’s training and guidance in their lives.

What will your investment in Cathedral’s science program go toward?

Science equipment and maintenance: Bunsen burners, burner tubing, glass stirring rods, microscope lens paper, wooden splints, beaker tongs, parafilm, etc.

Safety equipment and cleaning supplies: goggles, disposable gloves, disposable aprons, Clorox wipes, soap, bleach, paper towels, and first aid kits.

Science kits: acid/base kit, inquiry kit, reversible tin man chemical kit, ash water titration kit, design and function Blackberry solar kit, making a household surface cleaner, chemistry of gases lab, etc.

Dissection Day materials: minks, bullfrogs, earthworms, scalpel blades, aprons, goggles, gloves, dissection tray wax, dissecting pins, etc.

What is Dissection Day at Cathedral?

Dissection Day is a hands-on, interactive experience where students are able to dissect animals such as bullfrogs and earthworms, and where AP Biology students are able to dissect minks. The students look forward to this experiential learning opportunity and our teachers enjoy watching the students jump in and take charge as they examine the anatomy of each animal. Above is a photo of a dissection of a chicken wing that students experienced this first quarter.
