•Learn about the composition of cells in all living organisms and where DNA, the information molecule of life, is located.
•Extract DNA from the nuclei of a fruit and know why it works.
•Probe and spool real DNA with pipettes.
•Learn about the four molecules that code for all of life.
•Build a DNA ladder and twist into a double helix.
•Unzip and pair up to understand how DNA replicates itself.
•Think about how the extraordinarily long DNA molecules are packaged into minute nuclei inside each cell.
•Solve puzzles by sorting chromosomes by size, staining pattern and by centromere position.
•Determine if it is a boy or a girl.
•Learn about genes and find out what determines eye colour.
•Extract your own DNA and make forgery proof DNA Ink.
