Abstract: The goal of my Honors project was not simply to teach or explain a biological process, or to instruct students to memorize steps of pathway, but instead, I sought to portray the importance of biology in everyday life and to what degree biology infiltrates and encapsulates everything we are and do. For the purpose of my project, I coordinated with local high school biology instructors and created a gel electrophoresis instruction manual with laboratory demonstrations along with a PowerPoint presentation that I made available to them, to be delivered to local Native American high school students.
