Biology

What did you think of the book?

Overall, I thought the book was very interesting and informative. I learned a lot about how the cells were used, as well as their impact on the world of science and how the ethics of the science world has changed dramatically since the 1950's. 

What was it like to be working with cells that have been so important to medicine and science?

It was incredible working with the HeLa cells, just knowing how old they were, who had worked with them, and knowing that they have played a part in some of the largest medical discoveries.

Did you like the hands-on aspect of the course?

I did like the hands-on part of the lab because I finally got to see and understand better some of the things we had talked about in lecture, and I found working and seeing the DNA of the cells was incredibly fascinating. 

What do you think of the idea of having a common reading that can be applied to a course?

I think the idea of a common reading book for any subject is a good idea because it keeps students stimulated over the summer and prepares them as to what’s to come in the first semester of college.
