Grades 6–8

In 2008 the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to three scientists “for the discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein (GFP).” GFP is a fluorescent protein that was first isolated from a jellyfish called Aequoria victoria in 1961. Join us to explore how some jellyfish use GFP in nature, how molecular biologists have learned to use the protein in their research, and how to extract and purify GFP from genetically engineered bacteria.

Seats are limited to 8 students per class and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Parents will receive an email prior to registered programs with instructions for drop off and daily health surveys.

The DNALC is committed to providing a safe place for hands-on science. Depending on prevailing circumstances and CDC and New York State Health Department guidelines, our COVID-19 Safety Net provides for distanced workstations, individual equipment, daily health surveys and temperature monitoring, and weekly COVID-19 testing of instructors.
