    On September 17, Kellenberg Memorial High School student-scientists traveled to the Cold Spring Harbor DNA Learning Center West. Over the course of the four-hour program, students took part in a hands-on experience where they were able to learn molecular biology techniques in order to isolate DNA and replicate DNA. The trip also included a tour of the Northwell Health Core Laboratory where thousands of medical tests are performed each day. Two more trips to the DNA Learning Center are planned for later in the year.
