Wisconsin JA Business Challenge Championship Sheboygan– Sixty five of the best and brightest high school student “CEOs” competed in the annual Wisconsin JA Business Challenge Championship on April 25th in Sheboygan. The tournament was organized by Junior Achievement of Wisconsin and sponsored and hosted by ACUITY. Top teams from across the state advanced to the championship after winning regional events. Students took on roles as csuite executives to develop management strategies for a virtual company and product using the JA Titan web-based business simulation. The teams’ business strategies included decision on price, production, marketing, capital investment, along with research and development. “We believe the Wisconsin

JA Business Challenge is a great way for students to build entrepreneurial skills that will serve them well in their future careers.” said Tim Greinert, President of Junior Achievement of Wisconsin. “They may have learned some of these economic and business concepts in class but the Business Challenge provides the added emphasis of learning how to express their viewpoints and strategies for success as part of a high performing team.” The top performing teams earned $3,000 in scholarships for post-secondary education and other great prizes including gift cards for Kohl’s Department Stores. Winning teams included: Title champions/first place – earned a $1,000 edu-

cational scholarship per participant: Rice Lake High School’s Anna Kurzynski, Zachary Daniel, and Harrison Widdes. Second place – earned a $500 educational scholarship per participant: Sheboygan Falls High School’s Zachery Schwobe and Dean Windert. Third place – earned a $100 Kohl’s gift card per participant: Roncalli High School’s Spencer Fricke and Nathan Miller. Consolation winners – also earned a $100 Kohl’s gift card per participant: Pulaski High School’ Jordan Dietrichand Michael Jerovetz; West Salem High School’s Christian Schran and Chad Seitz; Greenfield High School’s Annie Chan, Srinidhi Emkay and Touger Vang.

Kohler students complete biotechnology and molecular biology curriculum College Prep Biology students at Kohler High School have recently completed the biotechnology component of the biology curriculum. Biotechnology is the technology of using living things to create useful products. Biotechnology has historically been used in the making of bread, wine, soap, the treatment of waste, and the production of cheese. Selective breeding of agricultural animals and selective practices in crop planting have occurred for hundreds of years. Biotechnology has changed due to the advancements

of technologies such as computers and software in the 1970’s to include the development of human insulin for the treatment of diabetes, human growth hormone for children, and identification of specific genes responsible for genetic disorders, and in some cases treatment for those disorders. College Prep Biology students learn and then use the steps necessary to move a gene from one organism to another. The process involves the isolation of plasmid DNA, using endonuclease restriction enzymes to cut DNA at spe-

cific sites in the DNA sequence, ligation of the plasmid fragments, transformation of bacteria, preparation and casting of agarous gel, electrophoresis of restriction enzyme digested DNA, staining, viewing, and photographing the gel, and learning the process by which scientists determine DNA fragment size. Ask any College Prep Biology student for more information on this experiment. They will be happy to share details of their successful experience!

Five students selected to participate in Trees for Tomorrow This fall five students were selected to participate in the high school program at Trees For Tomorrow. TFT is an independent, nonprofit, natural resource speciality school. Students selected included; Andrew Bryce, Megan Conklin, Katie Lindow, Katie Ruelle, and Sarah Sutherland. The trip lasted from November fourth through the seventh. Throughout the trip students took courses and participated in many fun, educational activities such as archery, compass and GPS navigation, tree identification, animal classification, wolf behavior, and survival skills. Everyday, students take a course about a specific skill and then go on a hike and practice the skill on their own. One of their favorite activities was navigating with compasses and GPS units. The students said that Trees For Tomorrow was an awesome experience that taught them a lot of interesting things about the environment and nature. Trees for

Tomorrow is a Wisconsin environmental tradition, offering programs, workshops, and special interest classes to students since 1944. TFT provides participants an opportunity that none forget. TFT is a natural resource education program that gives its participants a better understanding of resource conservation and management. The program especially focuses on the forest ecosystem and the environmental relationships that the ecosystem entails. The programs present a balanced variety of perspectives on natural resource topics so that participants can develop informed decisions on wise management of our resources. Kohler High School has selected many students over the years to participate in this once in a life-time opportunity. This year is no exception.

Revised AP Biology course Students learn to benefit the has students conduct environment through global biotechnology investigations The College Board has revised the AP Biology course into a course that focuses on enduring, conceptual understandings and the content that supports them. This approach may enable students to spend less time on factual recall and more time on inquiry-based learning of essential concepts and better help them to develop the reasoning skills necessary to engage in science practices. This redesigned curriculum will also provide students the experiences necessary to design a plan for collecting data, analyzing data, applying mathematical routines, and connecting concepts. One area of the new curriculum, Big Idea 3 Genetics and

Information Transfer, has students conduct two biotechnology investigations. One investigation is a bacterial transformation in which Kohler students transformed E. coli with an ampicillin resistance gene which was fused with the GFP (green fluorescent protein). The resultant ampicillin resistant bacterial colonies were grown on an ampicillin plate and exhibited fluorescent properties with an ultraviolet light source. The second investigation had Kohler students complete a restriction enzyme analysis of DNA then calculate the sizes of restriction enzyme fragment length and create a standard curve.

learning and observations GLOBE is a worldwide program composed of students, teachers, and scientists that work together to investigate and learn more about the environment. Students and their teachers across the globe are in charge of collecting and sharing data with other scientists and programs. Students in over 112 countries participate in GLOBE data collection led by over 58,000 trained teachers. The Kohler GLOBE Program is among 24,000 other schools that also collect data across the globe. Over 1.5 million students have contributed more than 23 million measurements to the GLOBE database. The GLOBE program in Kohler is made up of students in College Prep Biology and General Biology. These stu-

dents share the responsibilities of collecting and recording atmospheric data every school day. Upper classmen in College Prep Chemistry, AP Biology, and College Prep Physics contribute to the collection of hydrology data during the fall and spring. These students make up Kohler’s Testing the Waters Team. The atmospheric data collected by students in GLOBE is entered onto an international web-site data base. Students enter measurements like high and low temperatures, amounts of precipitation and pH, cloud type, and relative humidity. When combined with other data presented by students and teachers throughout countries around the world, scientists can interpret and observe changes

in the environment. Overall, this program allows every participating student, teacher, and scientist to track and learn more about our constantly changing environment. 2012/2013 GLOBE Participants: Marisa Adams, Dominic Bocchini, Andrew Bryce, Hannah Cantrell, Megan Conklin, Marilyn Guesneau, Lily Hart, Berta Hidri, Audra Hoffmann, Aidan Hogan, Kaleigh Kraft, Annika Lee, Katie Lindow, Katie Ruelle, Connor Sbrocco, Joe Schmitt, Carson Schneider, Hannah Smith, Levi Smith, Rebecca Stock, Cameron Scheuren, Sarah Sutherland, and John Tengowski. Biology teacher, Jessie Good, and chemistry and physics teacher, Dana Krejcarek, serve as advisors.
