"We prepare students to engage in the world that is and to help bring about a world that ought to be."

The DNA Of Learning

Grade 8 students in Dr. Greenwood's science class explored the structure and function of the molecule that builds life by extracting DNA from strawberries and bananas. Visualizing DNA in the plant model allows students to take part in a unique hands-on experience with a structural unit that is ordinarily invisible to the naked eye, yet plays such an enormous role in the making of the world as we know it. The value of this lab is certainly not lost on us this year, as the COVID-19 pandemic challenges everyone to consider how even the smallest things can have a major impact on our lives.
