The Hope College Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Club received a new $250 grant from the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) in support of outreach activities designed to connect elementary students to opportunities in science.
The Hope College Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Club will utilize the funds to invest in protein and DNA 3D modeling kits to help students visualize the biochemical principles. Funds will be used to support a strawberry DNA extraction experiment to the students–introducing them to very basic biochemical principles.
Congratulations to Maria Hledin, Faculty Advisor, and the Club’s Undergraduate Organizers: Prescott Binder (President), Marissa Solorzano (Vice-President), Isaiah Hough (Treasurer), and Mackenna Senti (Activities Coordinator)! Your ASBMB grant is testament to the importance of the Club’s activities, connecting to the broader community, and educating the next generation of scientists!
