Thanks to our friends at The Johns Hopkins University – Community School Initiative (JHU-CSI), the students had the opportunity to tour one of the labs in the new wing of the Mudd Building. Dr. Carolyn Fitch generously shared her time explaining the use of the equipment, lab procedures, and experiments that take place in the lab. The students also had a chance to see some of the high tech equipment in action and they were particularly amazed at the use of liquid nitrogen to freeze protein pellets that had been isolated in the main lab. It was an amazing experience to tour with the enthusiastic Dr. Fitch and we are thankful for the opportunity. Special thanks to CSI members Deanna Loh for setting up this experience and to Rebecca Obniski and Joseph Sloan for touring with us. We look forward to another year of weekly labs with JHU-CSI.
