CHS students learn about cell membranes

Campbellsville High School students are learning about cell membranes in their AP biology class.

 

Students in Lauren Bennett’s class are talking about how a cell membrane protects a cell.

 

To see their studies firsthand, students performed a lab exercise with bubbles to mimic the properties of a cell membrane.

 

Students were asked to use the bubbles to demonstrate how a cell membrane bends and adapts to its changing conditions.

 

They also used the bubbles to demonstrate how cell membranes can repair themselves.

 

And students studied how bubbles interact with air.
