On May 9, 2019 the  Future Science Leaders club went on a field trip to Columbia University in New York to meet the protein-RNA biochemist and author Samuel H. Sternberg. He runs a research laboratory at Columbia University and is an assistant professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics. He gave the students a great presentation on CRISPR technology and showed them his lab. After leaving the university, Mrs. Mendes and Ms. Medeiros took the students to a nice food establishment and then a walk around Times Square. The students enjoyed themselves and were even invited to come back one day.
