Floyd Central Students Participate in Genetics in Action Virtual Program

Floyd Central High School students in Cortney Kidd’s biology class participated in a virtual visit to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History on May 29th and 30th, 2018. The students participated in “Genetics in Action,” a lesson focused on current applications of DNA research. Ms. Lee Gambol, the Distance Learning Coordinator-Museum Instructor, worked with the students as they teamed up and analyzed forensic evidence from a crime scene, simulating DNA fingerprint procedures. The lesson allowed for connections to be made to bioethical issues that students had previously discussed this year. The funding for this program is provided for through Mrs. Kidd’s participation in the Kentucky Power and Kentucky Educational Development Corporation Get Online and Learn project.
