Two students in biology lab

Brittany Storey, a biology teacher at the Wayland Union High School, received grant money from the Wayland Union Education Foundation to purchase equipment that would allow her students to genetically engineer E. Coli bacteria. Students in Storey’s AP Biology class had the opportunity to use the technology for the first time in the beginning of February. Students worked together in groups to attempt to genetically engineer E. Coli so that it would glow in the dark using genes from jellyfish. Four out of six groups had success on the first attempt! Thank you Wayland Union Education Foundation for your continued support in growing our students' education.
