On Oct. 24, 2022, biology students in Lauri Piercy’s freshman class participated in a bubble lab to better understand cell membranes.

Wands were made from plastic straws, and the bubble solution was concocted with different compounds. Students blew small bubbles through a straw and made large bubbles by swishing a square wand in the air.

“It was a lot of fun, and all my classmates enjoyed it,” said Mackenzie Redfield.
