No screen Wednesday in the science department
Students in the micro school got stuck into some science practical work as part of ‘no screen Wednesday’. Each group had to extract DNA from kiwi fruit. This slightly messy but fun practical, results in you being able to pull the DNA strand out of the solution. There were lots of excellent questions about genetics and whether we should be able to genetically engineer plants and animals. The general consensus was that most of them would like to have a glow in the dark jelly fish gene inserted!
If you want to have a go at this experiment at home there are Youtube videos to show you how, including many that use things you can find at home.
