      ASMSA Invites You to Attend: Science and Engineering Institute Date:  Saturday, March 10th, 2018  Where:  The Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts, 200 Whittington Ave., Hot Springs, AR, 71901 Time:  9:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. Cost:  FREE!  Who Can attend:    All Arkansas students currently enrolled in 6th - 9th grade Students will attend both of the following sessions:   Isolate Your Own DNA! (90 min.) Have you ever thought about what makes you unique!?  If so, you’ve probably thought about your DNA, but have you ever SEEN it?  In this session, participants will get a chance to extract and purify their own DNA while learning about how DNA is replicated, how individual genes are expressed, and how these processes have been used by scientists to change the face of human medicine.  And the best part? - you can take your isolated DNA home with you, contained in a fun necklace to show your family and friends! and Imaging Fresh Brains (90 min.)  Your brain is not really just mush. It has structure that can be seen by staining - if you have a fresh brain. You will get to pop the brain out of a pig, section it and stain the whole brain to see the different layers in the neocortex. You may also get to look at individual neurons. These layers are what allow you to analyze information and formulate your own ideas. We will also discuss how all this thinking is understood to happen and talk about how Neuroscience looks at brains, inside a skull or out.                                                               Schedule of events:                                                            9:00  - 9:15         Registration                                                           9:15  - 10:30       Session 1                                                         10:30 - 10:45       Break                                                         10:45 - 12:00       Session 2 *PLEASE PRINT AND SIGN THE FOLLOWING: ASMSA General Release and Waiver    and    Media Release Form Your child should bring the completed forms to the event.  Extras will be provided on site which can be completed prior to the event.
