Biochem Club hosts Girls, Inc. Eureka! Program

The Biochem Club recently hosted 13 girls from the Girls, Inc. Eureka! program. Eureka! is a five year program for teenage girls, preparing them to participate and excel in STEM careers. During the school year, Eureka! scholars go on field trips one Saturday each month to take part in workshops. With help from Distinguished Professor Elizabeth Vierling and BMB staff members, the Biochem Club provided a workshop to 8th grade girls to teach them about basic lab skills such as pipetting, as well as how to visualize DNA and proteins. These girls were thrilled to put on lab coats and get some real experience at the bench!
