Students will attend both of the following sessions:

Isolate Your Own DNA! (90 min.) Have you ever thought about what makes you unique!? If so, you’ve probably thought about your DNA, but have you ever SEEN it? In this session, participants will get a chance to extract and purify their own DNA while learning about how DNA is replicated, how individual genes are expressed, and how these processes have been used by scientists to change the face of human medicine. And the best part? - you can take your isolated DNA home with you, contained in a fun necklace to show your family and friends!

and

How Does Cancer Begin and How Can We End It? (90 min.) This session is for those who would like to learn about how good cells turn to cancerous ones and what we can do to prevent and reverse this process. We will discuss the latest research such as using our own body’s immune cells to fight cancers inside us and isolate our own cells to better understand what normally growing cells look like.
