DNA is so cool

I can remember when DNA was the stuff of science labs. Today, students learn about it in elementary school. The stuff on the end of the rod in this student's hands is strawberry DNA. And, the great granddaughter of Charles Darwin was a guest at the celebration of Darwin's work at which the youngsters extracted DNA. She is Dr. Cecily Darwin Littleton.
