Pickert Planaria project

Biotechnology students study regrowth of Planaria and environmental affects

While in 7th hour biochemistry, sophomore Erika Garcia Reyes and her classmate, Josie Yungeberg, examine their Planaria. “During this project, I really enjoyed observing how Planaria regenerates and the freedom to be able to create a project that was interesting to me,” Garcia Reyes said.

In Larry Pickerts 7th hour biotechnology class,  students used Planaria samples from Antioch park to conduct an experiment on environmental affects.
