24/11/2015 STEM MODULE OFFERS EXCITING EXPERIENCE TO LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS

The STEM Module spent a day at Loreto College on Tuesday 24th November 2015, giving A Level Biology students an exciting hands-on opportunity with equipment and apparatus to which they might not usually have access.

The students had the opportunity to take part in a Biotechnology Restriction Digestion & Analysis of Lambda DNA workshop in the STEM module. Launched in 2009, the STEM Module is a mobile laboratory and workshop equipped with everything required to deliver a state of the art learning experience to schools across the province. The STEM module project is funded by the Department of Education and the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment, and managed by the North Eastern Education and Library Board. 

Loreto A Level science students carried out an experiment in the Biotechnology of Enzymes, exploring the structure of DNA and action of restriction enzymes, which included the use of an
electrophoresis chamber, an experience they found both educational and enjoyable.
