On Wednesday March 11, 2020 the AP Biology class will be attending the Regeneron DNA Learning Center in Sleepy Hollow, NY. This is an all-day mandatory lab experience in which students will perform two 3 1/2 hour labs on DNA and Biotechnology which are required for the AP Biology course and exam (Biotechnology: Bacterial Transformation and Biotechnology: Restriction Enzyme Analysis of DNA).
Students must arrive at MRHS by 8:30 AM sharp to travel by bus to the learning center. We will return to MRHS at approximately 3:30 PM. Please make arrangements for transportation to and from school for this trip. Students may “dress down” for the labs.
Please be sure to bring a bag lunch and snacks because there is no cafeteria at the lab (but a microwave and refrigerator are available). Also, do not forget to bring pen/pencil and the lab protocols which will be distributed before the trip.
Please complete all forms by Wednesday February 26, 2020.
