Students to hear from Taconic researcher
A scientist with one of the largest providers "of life sciences solutions to researchers worldwide" will speak to TVHS students on March 10 in recognition of Biotechnology Month.
Jaime Rusconie will discuss what Taconic Farms does - among other things it raises millions of mice used for testing by scientists worldwide, and then she will lead students on a DNA experiment. During the experiment, students will actually gather DNA samples from their cheek that will then be tested.
She will also lead students on a tour of the Taconic Farms labs, which are located in the same building as Tech Valley High School.
The two-hour session, which begins at 8:30 at TVHS, will culminate with a question- and answer- session.
