BMS students show off their science skills


S. John Collins / Baker City Herald Can you use household items to extract DNA? That is the question behind Isabella Evans’ Science Fair experiment at Baker Middle School Tuesday. By combining rubbing alcohol, saltwater and Dawn dishwashing liquid, she says she would get DNA from strawberries and a banana. Evans methodically worked on the presentation for judges, who were to figure out the best projects done by all the students.
