Syosset Students Know DNA


DNA_120915ACold Spring Harbor Laboratory has been conducting DNA workshops with fifth-graders throughout the Syosset Central School District.

During a recent visit to South Grove Elementary School, CSHL educator Gregory Reilly taught students about the structure of a DNA molecule using a double helix model before leading them in the construction of their own models. Students reviewed the six parts that make up a DNA molecule and used worksheets to identify the different components of an animal cell.
