Genetics and DNA
Genetics and DNA studies are in the news nearly every day. Whether frightening or exciting to them, your children can't evaluate if they don't understand the science behind it. This new kit will investigate genetics, the section of biology that spotlights heredity, and DNA, the celebrated acid that holds the blueprints for life.
Your child will isolate the tomato DNA in a test tube, discover dominant and recessive genes, learn how chromosomes are combined, and much more. The kit assumes some basic understanding of reproduction. The children will build a model to see the double-stranded helical structure of DNA and investigate DNA evidence to identify suspects and solve a crime. They will even breed bacteria to experiment with genetic engineering. Full-color, 48-pages for ages ten and up.
