Biology students master volumetric measurement techniques while creating a unique work of art, all with Covid restrictions in place.
Science students must demonstrate a collection of competencies, including an array of essential laboratory skills. In our Cellular and Molecular Biology course (BIOL 240), a crucial skill is the transfer of small volumes of liquids using a micropipette. To learn this foundational technique, students follow a “pipette by numbers” pattern on a canvas, which allows them to asses their ability to transfer the correct volume (demonstrating accuracy) repeatedly (demonstrating precision). At the end, each student’s picture forms part of a larger pattern of all the images created by the students in the lab, resulting in a colorful depiction of the double helices in DNA.
During this lab activity, students who elected to take the lab in-person completed the experiment in partnership with remote students who joined by videoconference.
