Team Spotlight: Manhattan Comprehensive Night & Day High School
Location: New York, NY
This is the third year our school has participated in BioBuilder Club. When it came to choosing a synthetic biology project, we wanted to choose a project that we could design, build and test. After reviewing several research topics on synthetic biology, we were quite interested in the BioBuilder project “Ionizing radiation biosensor and bioreporter“ conducted by last year's BioBuilderClub team from our school. In their research project, they transferred Deinococcus radiodurans UV DNA damage endonuclease – uvsE into E. coli chassis and experimented with UV-A and UV-B radiation to see how DNA repaired mechanisms in E. coli worked by measuring cell survival rate. However, this team did not have the chance to experiment with radiation sensing genes. After consulting with our mentor, Dr. Sherwood, we decided to look for radiation sensing genes. Our research goal is to design a whole celled biosensor combined with a reporter plasmid, capable of detecting ionizing radiation from the contaminated environment and indicating the presence of radiation doses.
The team is mentored by Racquel Sherwood. We look forward to following their journey this year in BioBuilderClub!

Senior Outward Bound Trip
Led by our own master rock climber, teacher Roy Malinis, our MCN&DHS seniors scaled the highest peaks to be found in Long Island City, also know as the Himalayas of New York. These photographs capture it all - the concentration needed to learn something new, the courage to try it, the teamwork needed for success and the feeling of accomplishment when you succeed.
Guidance Conference at MCN&DHS
On Monday, June 3rd MCN&DHS continued its fall recruitment drive with 25 guidance counselors, social workers, teachers and administrators joining us for a Guidance Counselor Conference at MCN&DHS.
We had the opportunity to share the success of our program.
And they had the opportunity to meet some of our students and ask questions.
Dr. Scope also presented a workshop on Managing the Impact of Secondary Trauma on School Counselors reminding everyone present to take time off, a fitting message for the end of the school year.
MCN&DHS student Walid Al Maghrabi was one of 13 students from across NYC honored by the Scholarship Plus organization this week, which provides sustained financial and professional support to first-generation college students throughout their futures in higher education. Walid was sighted by the selection committee not only for overcoming adversities but also for his “phenomenal storytelling abilities and eloquence.” Walid is headed to Fordham University this summer where he’ll receive an early and intensive intro to college via Fordham’s HEOP program. A man of many interests, Walid plans to focus on the STEM fields in college and beyond.
