DNA Day at Danville Elementary School

The Biology and Allied Health Club visited Mrs. Long’s class at Danville Primary Elementary School twice in May to teach students about DNA.  During the first lesson, students learned about DNA structure and built DNA models using candy!  The second lesson involved extracting DNA from a banana.  Lessons were conducted by the club advisors (Dr. Hess and Dr. Venditti), Dana Frobese (club President), and Andrew King (graduate student).
