Our courses are interactive, use videos and images and, most importantly, include hands-on activities such as building model systems using candy and household items, extracting strawberry DNA and observing it under microscopes the students build, and engaging in lab activities and demos in order to explore both the molecular and organismal aspects of inheritance.

Campers will explore careers in genetics on Thursday and see what the praxis of our studies looks like in the professional world. The culminating project will be a presentation to peers and parents on the heritable disease that students have researched as we explore each aspect of our curriculum.
