This school year, I have learned about the subjects:

- humans and their environment
- human reproduction, growth and development (theory and lab)
- cell, cell environment, diffusion and osmosis, homeostasis
Excursions and learning journeys
To learn mora about human immunology, I visited the annual conference of the German Society of Transfusion Medicine and Immune Hematology 2013 in Münster, Germany, attended meetings and spoke with the experts. For attending the congress, I received a certificate, according to the regulations for ongoing education of the German association of medical laboratory scientists.
Nature and environmental park Güstrow
Natur- und Umweltpark Güstrow is an educational park, where people can learn about nature. Information about ecology, geology, insects, plants, trees and animals is presented in a hands-on fashion. The animals in the park live in a natural habitat as much as possible. In the park they have free roaming deer, wild pigs, bears, wolves and many species of smaller animals like birds, squirrels, storks, raccoons, etc. To give you an impression I have added some photos.
Photosynthesis and Metabolism in Plants
The funny thing is, that I have left the bottles closed and standing at the window. The bottle that had been opened has grown a lot of ferns (I did not plant those, I can assure you.) The other bottle that had not been opened has a very lush appearance (think tropical rain forest), althoug my flowering plant has vanished, the other plants have thrived.
