Students had the opportunity to demonstrate proficiency in the skill of writing a Procedure. They were provided with an EOC-style procedure writing task directly related to the strawberry DNA extraction experiment from yesterday. During the last 15 minutes of class, students watched the Stranger Visions video to learn how their human DNA can be used to construct 3-D printed models of faces.
We are wrapping up the Genetics Unit and transitioning to the Evolution Unit. The Stranger Visions video is an excellent example of the merger of art, science, and technology. Give it a watch, and think twice the next time you spit out your gum!
