York High School Celebrates Darwin Day!

We had a birthday party for Charles Darwin in Bio Club and in our biology classes on Feb 12. We brought in food and drinks and watched video clips of HHMI Holiday Lectures on Evolution and Ken Miller's special lecture at HHMI. We had a lively discussion about attitudes about evolution in society today. Two of the students wrote a special rap to our man, CHUCKY-D!

We are in the process of mating zebra fish and as of Friday, we had teeny tiny little baby zebra fish in our breeding tank! Success!

Next, we are going to try to tackle some RNAi work. We have ordered RNAi feeding strains of bacteria and some C. elegans and we will just play around to see what we can do.
