LVCHS students active

After a long week of midterm exams and a snow day, the second semester here at Lehigh Valley Christian High School has finally begun.

The anatomy class recently visited the "Bodies Revealed" exhibit at the Da Vinci Center. Along with examining real life bodies the students were also able to perform forensics labs, examine fossils, and much more.

Also the AP chemistry class visited Lafayette College to perform a fluidization lab. Students were able to examine the fluidization points of different substances.
