8th Grade Cadette troop 8175 had the opportunity to visit Illumina, Inc.  We toured the facility and learned all about DNA and genetic sequencing.  We had the opportunity to extract our own DNA and view some amazing technology.  Two of the employees we met were previous girl scouts themselves and were eager to tell us about their careers.   One went on to pursue degrees in chemistry while the other focused on engineering.  Overall, it was a fascinating tour and we all enjoyed it!
