Genomics by Dr. Dawn Kernagis, IHMC

December 15, 2018

The final Science Saturday of 2018 was Genomics, presented by Dr. Dawn Kernagis, Research Scientist at IHMC. Students learned about DNA, and did related hand-on science activities. In one activity, they extracted a strand of DNA from a strawberry, amazing students and high-school aged volunteers alike. We appreciated the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office (law enforcement trust fund monies) and Gulf Power, whose generosity made it possible for IHMC to offer these events free of charge to all attendees.
