Senior Alexa Collins pours some warm water and a shriveled melted blue Froot Loops onto a paper towel.

G Period Advanced Placement Environmental Science students worked in groups this afternoon to design experiments testing the chemical properties of Froot Loops in varied water temperatures.

“It was a cool lab where we got to explore the scientific method and to think something up on our own,” said junior Shannon Smith.

 The lab fits into the curriculum to prepare students for one of the four essays on the AP exam, according to science teacher Marisa Kendall.

“The [national] percentage of student success of the essays is really low, so this question that asks students to design a lab is a chance for easy points,” said Kendall.

Senior Alexa Collins records data on a lab sheet designed by her and her fellow scientists. Science teacher Marisa Kendall split up the class of juniors and seniors into groups — each with a unique Froot Loop to water hypothesis.
