Faculty Member. FEMMES (Females Excelling More at Math, Engineering, and Sciences). February 1, 2009

Other

Service to the Community ; I run a day long workshop for 3rd-6th grade girls once a year for the FEMMES program, called "The Fly and I." In each session the girls learn how to use microscopes to look for mutations in fruit flies, about the similarities between flies and humans, and why fruit flies are useful to study (and should not be abhorred). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiAoLV9IP5U&feature=related ; http://www.duke.edu/web/FEMMES/index.html
