Team Spotlight: Manhattan Comprehensive Night & Day High School

The team is mentored by Racquel Sherwood. We look forward to following their journey this year in BioBuilderClub!

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.

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.
