ChristianaCare continues its efforts to educate high school students about new cutting-edge techniques in gene editing.

Earlier this year, the health system launched its ‘CRISPR in a Box’ educational toolkit in Delaware high schools, allowing students to perform gene editing experiments using CRISPR in the classroom.

It’s now unveiling a new video series to use with the tool kit, including CRISPR demonstrations and a roundtable conversation on race, gender and science.

While GPS, radar and other modern navigation tools reign supreme on the high seas now, many lighthouses remain an important beacon for boats.

Delaware’s Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse warns mariners as they enter the Delaware Bay; and has been doing so for over 100 years.

And now, the U.S. Postal Service has chosen the iconic building to become a stamp, alongside four other mid-atlantic lighthouses.

In this week’s Enlighten Me, Delaware Public Media’s Roman Battaglia talks to the Delaware River and Bay Lighthouse Foundation, the group that now owns the lighthouse, about its history.
