The June 2017 Module at PVSS, based on the principles of both Biology and Physics, is scheduled for the first Saturday of the month (June 3rd, 2017). Two very talented Bay Area middle school students – Aditi Kulkarni and Avni Kulkarni – will host the Bio-physics module and will engage the PVSS kids in a “Phytoplankton Race”.
The goal of the module is to discuss the biodiversity of planktons and how they remain afloat in the sea for survival. Through this activity the kids will learn about how complex biological pathways are involved in keeping planktons afloat and also about the principles of buoyancy. Each kid will be able to take part in the race and through this engaging game be able to appreciate the laws of nature that govern the life of living organisms.
