Learning about genomics does not always require fancy equipment! In fact, some of the most popular activities we have enacted require only affordable and familiar household items. Here are a few of our favorites that may be a good fit for your kitchen or classroom:
- If you have enough DNA, it can be seen with the naked eye! Extract DNA from a strawberry.
- Construct a model of DNA's chemical structure using edible materials.
- Why is hand-washing important? Model the spread and the removal of microbes.
