Biochemist’s Apprentice

Saturday, May 30, 2015
10:30 am - 12:00 pm

There can be a fine line between potentially fatal poisons and lifesaving medicines. Kids joined biochemist Mandë Holford, who showed how to use a microscope to spot tiny venomous critters. Apprentices also learned how to remove an animal’s venom glands and run a chemical analysis to isolate harmful compounds from helpful ones.

This event is supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
