Mrs. Foraker and Mrs. Nicosia recently brought the Genetics and Biotechnology class and the AP Biology class to Stony Brook University’s Institute for STEM Education (I-STEM). In the Biotechnology Laboratory students worked together on investigations into genetically modified foods and enzyme structure and function.

Students enjoyed using state-of-the-art laboratory equipment in an actual lab setting. They also took a brief tour of Stony Brook University’s campus. The experience allowed them to see the possibilities that a science education can offer, beyond their years at Carle Place.
