It Happened at School: WGMS Scientists Test the Effects of E-cigarette Vapor

It Happened at School: On January 22, WGMS students in Maggie Barrett’s science classes tested the effects of e-cigarette vapor on living cells using a kit developed and provided by Cornell University researchers.

 The module, which was developed by Cornell, allows students to apply science in a real-world scenario in order to educate them on dangers of vaping. Students compared untreated cells, to cells treated with e-cigarette vapor and unsmoked vape liquid to see the impact on cell viability, motility, and overall shape over time.
