Feb 21 and 22: our STEM Lab is all about DNA. Delicious DNA!
Every living thing — including you — is made up of unique DNA (or deoxyribonucleic acid), the main constituent of chromosomes. It’s our DNA that gives us character because it’s the carrier of our distinctive genetic information and can be used to identify someone or something.
We’ll take a look at strawberries, and we’ll perform a scientific experiment using household materials to extract the DNA that makes a strawberry a strawberry. The neat thing about strawberry DNA is that you can see it with the naked eye!
This program takes place in the Fairbanks Museum STEM Lab with a maximum of 10 participants.
