Science lab explores cell growth
Richard T. Stank Middle School Science Teacher Ashley Zietz likes to introduce her students to real world experience in her well-equipped second floor lab. In December, her students got to do something a little out of the ordinary - an experiment comparing cancer cells and normal cells grown under different conditions. The idea for the experiment was grown during the summer of 2018 during Mrs. Zietz's time working with a post-doctoral scientific colleague at Cornell University. "This was an 8-week program where I  shadowed Gat Rauner at Cornell," Mrs. Zietz explained. "Gat and I designed this experiment as part of the NYSTEM program at Cornell while we were each involved in our own research. I think this is a great chance for students to be introduced to scientific research and is certainly unlike anything they have done before."
