Are You Color- Blind?

The Class of 2013 recently put their science lessons to the test with an experiment of their own. After learning about the role of heredity and physical traits they designed a lab activity in which they tested themselves and other students for color- blindness.
Students first researched the kind of test that is given for this trait. Next, they either designed their own model for testing or used one that they found on a reliable web site. Participating students then were asked to tell what they thought they saw on the paper. This information became part of seventh grade’s data which helped to determine if there might be any students here at ACS that might be color-blind.
In the discussion at the end of the lab, students concluded that most likely there are no color- blind students in the upper grades. They finished up the lab by writing down their findings and handing in their lab report for a grade.
