High school students associated with the Summer College in Biological Sciences Program (SCIBLS) at North Carolina State University (NCSU) participated in a foray at the Schenck Forest on Friday, July 10, 2015 with their instructor Dr. Melissa Merrill and members of the Cubeta laboratory (Lindsey Becker, Dr. Van Cotter, Kathryn Hanser, Brianna Hoge, Marie Meckman, and Megan Miller). The students collected fungal fruiting bodies (mushrooms), took notes on their appearance and the habitat where they were growing. The fungi were transported to the a laboratory on the NCSU campus for further examination of morphological characteristics and to extract DNA for sequence based analysis and identification. Each student developed a poster that was presented at the SCIBLS Symposium from 10:30 to 12:30 on Friday, July 31, 2015 at the Talley Center. The symposium was attended by faculty, staff, students, and their parents.
