Why are your eyes brown and mine green? Why is your hair so curly? What does your blood type mean? Will your brother go bald? In this class, we learn about the basics of DNA, the instruction manual for all cells, and how DNA impacts the way traits are passed from one generation to the next. We will create mixed-media art pieces to showcase important cell cycles, and we will use fun Interactive models to learn about inheritance and variance. Students will play Sherlock Holmes to decode a series of genetic mysteries and will come up with their own gripping short stories showing how murders can be solved using biological techniques. No prior experience is necessary.
