"One of my most amazing experiences happened when we were given an assignment where my class created a Biotechnology timeline with key events in biotech. I chose the cloning of Dolly the Sheep. I wrote to the scientist that cloned her, Ian Wilmut, and a few days later I got a reply! I posted it to my VHS course, and printed it and showed everyone. It was amazing." Amber Grenier, VHS student
