DNA extraction

posted in: Maple | 0

In Maple we have been learning about what DNA is.  We played a game to create our own cartoon characters choosing eyes, nose, mouth, eyebrows and hair; we recorded the code for each and at the end compared them throughout the class.  We found that everyone had a different code just like all of our DNA is different.

We then did an experiment to extract DNA from strawberries which was great fun, especially mashing and sieving the strawberries!
