DNA Trip for AP Biology

Last week, our school's AP Biology classes participated in two trips to a DNA laboratory. Our students routinely participate in hands on lab experiences that both improve their knowledge of the curriculum, and allow them to successfully complete their curriculum in Advanced Placement (College Level) Biology.

On this trip, students visited a professional DNA lab to study restriction enzyme analysis and bacterial transformation. Our students had the opportunity to use important biotechnology equipment, which gave them hands on experience with the tools used by professionals. 

Special thanks to teachers Dr. Fruchter and Rabbi Lubner for organizing this trip. A special thanks to Mrs. Zakay who joined as a second chaperon.
