Subject: Chemistry

Question:

Describe how an electron can behavior as both a wave and a particle.

Inactive

Answer:

Electrons have wave-particle duality depending on how they are observed. This phenomenon was discovered through various quantum mechanical experiments. When electrons are passed through a double slit screen and not observed, their interference pattern is recorded as a wave. However, when a device is used to record the movement of electrons through the slits, the interference pattern recorded shows electrons behaving as particles! This puzzling behavior has baffled scientists and to this day no one is 100% certain why this phenomenon occurs.

Subject: Gender Studies

Question:

What is intersectionality and why is it important to our understanding of gender studies?

Inactive

Answer:

Intersectionality is the compounding effect that multiple identities have on a person's experience of oppression in the world. Although often thrown out as a buzz word, intersectionality is actually vitally important to consider when developing systems and thinking about privilege. For example, a queer woman experiences oppression from her sexual orientation and from her gender identity. These disadvantages do not exist separately, but rather are compounded in her experience of the world.

Subject: Biology

Question:

Which organelle in the cell do you think is the most important for cellular function and why?

Answer:

The cell membrane. Often overlooked as the most important organelle (most people think the nucleus, the mitochondria, or the ribosomes) the cell membrane is responsible for maintaining chemical gradients and allowing the transport of vital proteins and macromolecule into the cell. As well, without the membrane, the cell would not be a discrete unit, with the other organelles floating aimlessly in a sea of cytoplasm. A cell cannot replicate DNA, generate ATP, or preform any other vital function without the barrier of the cell membrane. The cell membrane is an integral reason for why life can exist on earth.
