It’s A (B)!

You might remember I posted a blog a few weeks ago talking about my daughter, Shantel, having a huge biology experiment project that would count as a big part of her final grade for the semester. Shantel decided she was going to do her experiment on hair relaxer’s and the effects they have on hair, skin tissue, and the environment. I was even drafted into the project when I was asked to help Shantel weigh and measure each of the samples used in the experiment before the hair relaxer was applied, rinse off all the relaxer after each sample had been in the hair relaxer solution for the specified time, and weigh and measure each sample after the relaxer had been rinsed off…

Once all the data was collected, Shantel had to create a PowerPoint presentation for the class and her professor.

Shantel has a wonderful friend, Jaz, who graduated college last year with a biology major, and who spent hours helping Shantel create her PowerPoint presentation. Shantel needed help creating the PowerPoint because her computer will speak to her, but it will not show or tell her about graphics which makes it all but impossible for Shantel to place the correct pictures/graphics into the correct slides…

Shantel provided all the data from the experiment to Jaz via attachments sent through email. Then, working over the phone throughout the night sometimes, Shantel told Jaz how she wanted the information displayed. Jaz then pulled all the information into a beautiful PowerPoint presentation. Jaz even added in chimes to signal Shantel that the next slide was up. Then, in the name of true friendship, Jaz took a bus from her night shift job to the college, and assisted Shantel by changing each of the slides as Shantel presented the information… What a great gal and fabulous friend Jaz is to Shantel.

Here are a few of the slides Shantel and Jaz created for the biology final project PowerPoint presentation. There were several more slides but I just wanted to give the highlights here.

This is Shantel all dolled up in her goggles, as we get ready to begin the weighing and measuring part of the experiment. Notice she is not about to let go of that purse… 🙂 P.S. the little bell in front of Shantel’s mouth is the chime Jaz put into the PowerPoint slides.

Bio PP

This is Shantel, her chemistry professor, in the white (she let us use her lab even though this was a biology project), and yes, that’s me, yours truly, in the blue lab coat and goggles, learning how to use the super sensitive scale that will change weight if you even breathe on it…

Bio PP2

This slide spoke to the method and materials used.

Bio PP3

There were several slides showing each numbered sample used in the experiment.

Bio PP4

I found this information and slide most interesting as it shows and tells how the chicken, used to represent skin tissue, actually looked like it was starting to cook…

Bio PP5

This results slide showed the weights of each sample before and after the hair relaxer solution had been applied. Very interesting results…

Bio PP6

The conclusion slide pulled the whole experiment/presentation together, and told how the experiment supported the hypothesis.

Bio PP7

Of course, a work cited page was a must to complete the project and presentation, which earned a (B) for Shantel.

Bio PP8

Yeah!!!! Great job and excellent teamwork Shantel and Jaz. We just could not be more proud of you… 🙂

BTW… this is post number 300 for me… Yeah me!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Stay Tuned!
