Aspiring scientists at WHS...

Students in Honors Biology participated in the Amgen-Bruce Wallace biotechnology program.  The program provides high school Biology students with a hands-on opportunity to perform biotechnology techniques currently used in research and industry.  Students in the Honors Biology classes were able to learn about genetics and DNA by performing real-life laboratory techniques, including gel electrophoresis and PCR.  The program also provided students with an introduction to biotechnology career opportunities, connecting students with potential professional paths in the field of science.  Wakefield students Akash Altman, Elizabeth Germino and Sara Custodio with their teacher Ms. Becky Lamarre agreed to have their pictures taken for the newest program training manual.
