Genetics Workshop at ASPIRE After School Program at Gretchen Higgins Elementary, Dixon, CA

Dennis lab graduate student Colin Shew coordinated a Genetic workshop for elementary school students that took place at Gretchen Higgins Elementary School today. The workshop focused on teaching the basic structure of the DNA and the isolation of DNA from a strawberry. This activity was a lot of fun and the students enjoyed the workshop so much they asked for additional science workshops from us. We are grateful for Deborah, the ASPIRE coordinator’s help and look forward to going back and teaching more awesome science! :) Volunteers for this event included Dennis lab members, José, Ellen and Alex.
