LHS students visit genetics conference

ASHTABULA — Stem cells, cloning, and scientific breakthroughs had Lakeside High School students excited after attending Sam Rhine’s Nationwide Genetic Update Conference.

Students in the Advanced Placement Biology class attended the conference hosted by Mayfield High School on Nov. 7, said Biology Teacher and Science Department Facilitator, Brian Toth.

“Mr. Rhine is a genetics educator from Indiana University that travels around the country giving lectures to high school students about current topics in the field of genetics, in addition to teaching courses at the university,” Toth said.

The entire class of 15 students attended the conference, and Toth said “not a single one of them was not excited leaving the conference, and it has been inspiring to some of the students as to their future plans.

“It is not often that a group of high school students are excited after sitting through a 4-hour lecture, but every student was talking about different aspects of the information they just learned and asking questions on the hour bus ride home to Ashtabula.”
