20 Jun A Juneteenth celebration of science
Outreach teams from UW–Madison brought the “Kitchen Chemist,” hands-on exploration stations, and a chance to chat with scientists to the Kujichagulia Center for Self-Determination Juneteenth celebration at Penn Park Saturday.
Children make “DNA bracelets” by connecting test tubes with sequences of colored water (representing ACGT bases for DNA). The activity was hosted by Irene Ong, associate director of the Carbone Cancer Center’s Cancer Informatics Shared Resource and an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology with a joint appointment in biostatistics and medical informatics.
