Welcome to the BE Board Community Service Wiki! Please email Bridget Wall, at email@example.com with your suggestions.
The BE Board will be sponsoring several Community Service events this year, including building DNA legos, collaborations with the Charles River Conservancy, and acting as a partner in the Annual Cambridge Science Festival.
We helped glue and assemble lego-based tRNA molecules for lego kits to be sent to the Boston Community Leadership Academy (http://www.bostonpublicschools.org/school/boston-community-leadership-academy)
Thank you to those that volunteered: Lorenna Buck, Yvonne Yamanaka, Ethan Sokol, Nate Schafheimer, Xiaosai Yao, Sarah Schrier, Bill Hesse.
