McClain FFA Places 3rd in State

On Friday January 24, 2020, four members of the McClain FFA Chapter traveled to Central State University for the State Biotechnology Contest. The members who competed in this contest were Justin Hall, Brogan Villars, Aly Murphy, and Hannah Crago. During the contest the team had to complete a series of Lab Practicums including Micro-Pipetting, Gel Reading, SDS Questions, Lab Equipment ID, and present research findings from a provided scenario/problem. This was the first year for the State Biotechnology contest and the first step to getting to the contest is for the team to place in the top 20 on the online exam. The team placed 8th on the online exam and 3rd at the contest! Congratulations to all of our members on this great accomplishment!
