DNA

Children are forever hearing things about genetics and evolution without understanding the true meaning. Over the past few year along the media have published reports on three parent babies, stem cells, bacteria with an extra genetic letter and many other genetic related discoveries and developments. Parents often tell their children who they look alike and what common traits they have in their families. Some parents even point out genetic defects such as colour blindness, cystic fibrosis and so on. However without a basic understanding of the genetic code children are often left with many questions.

This workshop introduces the children to the genetic code and evolution by allowing the children to make their own 3D models of DNA and extracting DNA from cells.

This workshop is suitable for KS2-3
This workshop takes approximately 50-60 minutes.

  • Brilliant from start to finish!! The children loved it, and the grandparents were equally entertained! Great value for money too. All I needed to do was feed them! Even tidied up before you went home! We have a pair of goggles here which I can post to you xx
