The sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students of Ss. Peter and Paul School in Alton attended a STEM Careers Exploration Program at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis. The day was divided into four programs: Botany: The Awesomeness of Plants; Genomics — DNA Isolation; Pediatric Emergency Medicine-ER ... Is It Like It Is On TV? and Pharmacology — Why Pharmacy? Each of the 30-minute programs combined information presented by a professional in the field and practical hands-on applications. After the completion of the program, the students were allowed to walk through greenhouses of the garden. Pictured are the students with Latricia Wallace, outreach associate of the Genome Institute of Washington University. In this session, the students extracted DNA from a strawberry. In other sessions, they were allowed to experience glue being used in place of stitches and to feel chemical compounds pharmacists are responsible for mixing.
