    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it provided me with insightful information about the mechanisms of diseases and interested me further in the field of immunology.

    Course highlights:

    At the end of the course, we had to give a final presentation on one disease and how it works and it was so nice to see all the information I had learned over the course of the semester come together.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have any slight interest, I would advise you to take it because it was an amazing experience I would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I will recommend this course for biology enthusiasts. The material is very in-depth and you feel immersed in a world full of macrophages, dendritic cells, bacteria, and viruses. Dr. Randall is also very inspiring will her energetic attitude she explains the material in different ways with pictures to make sure every student understands the material before the tests.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were being able to learn concepts and then teaching them back to the class along with the 20x20 which is the final project. We have to explain a disease assigned to you with 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide. Putting this presentation together reminded me of all the fun I had learning each concept of infection.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need help, please speak with the teacher. They are more than happy and willing to help you understand. I learned that you could scour the internet for hours and not find the answer, but merely talking with the teacher for 5-10 minutes cleared everything up. Study sessions before a test are a must. Find a white board and some friends and draw out all the pathways and organisms you learned about it will help more than studying by yourself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Microbes and Disease is a course that covers the introduction to microbiology, immunology, and virology. It is fascinating to learn about these topics as only a high school student and the teacher is very passionate about everything covered in the class.

    Course highlights:

    In the beginning of the course, a lot of time is spent in the lab and it's a lot of fun. The immunology unit is fascinating and you learn so much about how your body protects itself from disease. After immunology, you learn about virology and give a big presentation (20x20) at the end of the semester where you present about a virus, bacterium, or parasite.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is so helpful to write summaries of what the teacher went over in class and then go in during the teacher's office hours to go over them. It helps with the class material as well as you can learn more about microbiology as a field of study.
