Project BioEYES: A Zebrafish Experiment

As part of our STEM curriculum, students were able to take part in the Carnegie Science Program BioEYES.  For one week our students learned about Zebrafish and their similarities to humans.  They worked with Zebrafish every day and recorded findings in their journals, collected data, and came to some very insightful conclusions.  The Zebrafish start off in the “mating tank” and the very next day they produce fish embryos.  The students watch the embryos’ development into a fish every day for a week through high powered microscopes.  This awesome hands-on opportunity allowed our students to learn about genetics and the life cycle of a vertebrate animal through direct observation and experimentation.  AMAZING!
