8th Grade Blood Type Lab

12-20-2018School Happenings

Students in the 8th grade class worked on a life science unit by doing a lab that allowed them to determine their blood type. With the assistance of Heritage Valley Health System’s Dr. Denise Wegrzynowicz, and their science teacher Mrs. Darci Smith, the students used a self-test kit designed for at-home use and drew a finger prick blood sample to test for their blood type based on the ABO and Rhesus-D systems.
