chemistry camp

化学营地

18名高中和初中生,三个本科生,在米利基的第三个化学营地,共同努力,对莱姆病进行研究,而且 - 因为我们相信化学家的化学制作 - 露营者立即开始探索预防性,诊断和治疗疾病。

他们进行了实验:

  • 从酵母中分离酶以研究不同组合的药物对抗莱姆病
  • 通过SDSPAGE凝胶电泳,定量蛋白质测定和滴定来检查它们的成功纯化
  • 从蜱提取DNA并使用PCR检查它们是否携带Borrelia Burgdorferi

Between experiments, the 企业家中心 coordinated speakers on the topics of Lyme Disease, effectual thinking, and presentation best practices. As always, each camp week ended with a presentation dinner for campers and their families. A highlight this year was a rap about Lyme Disease presented by some of the high school campers! Thanks to the generosity of Dr. John Hortenstine, class of 1965 and retired chemist from Johnson & Johnson Co., 3 high school and 2 junior high school students received chemistry camp scholarships this year.
