SXU science program hosts lab for at-risk high school students

Students to observe, perform DNA experiments
Chicago (July 30, 2008) Saint Xavier University’s science program will host a laboratory with hands-on experiments for Chicago high school students from economically disadvantaged areas from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 1 at SXU’s Chicago campus, 3700 W. 103rd St.

SXU Biology Professor Tatiana Tatum and Assistant Biology Professor Rick Monzon said the program will give about 30 students a chance to experience a typical college laboratory environment.

Tatum said students also will observe and partake in several experiments, including observing DNA they will remove from strawberries by themselves.

“They’re going to grind up the strawberries, add the chemicals and extract the DNA so they can actually see it,” she said.

Tatum said students also will examine their own DNA by extracting it from cheek cells.
The event is a joint effort between SXU and Umoja Student Development Corporation.
