Announcing the next 2019 Maranacook Education Foundation grant recipient....Ernest Colvin, Maranacook High School Science Teacher, who received funding for a project to build a hand-made piece of equipment that would otherwise be unattainable to the Maranacook science department. Purchasing a biolistic gene delivery system (“gene gun”) pre- manufactured traditionally can cost between $17,000 and $30,000, a price point far too high. The grant funds will allow students to experience both building and experimenting with this exciting technology to study basic cell biology, genetics, and molecular biology. Thank you Ernest and thank you MEF donors for facilitating this amazing experience!
