Learn about biology, genetics, DNA and famous scientists with this thorough and engaging science kit. Genetics is the section of biology looking at heredity, variations and life itself. Through the twenty hands on experiments you can see genetic material with your own eyes, and build your own DNA model to see the three acid combinations which make up the blueprint of life.
Why do parents and children share traits? How can DNA help solve crimes? Through games, experiments and investigations learn about cells, chromosomes, dominant and recessive genes, mutation, cloning and much more. You'll soon be analysing DNA evidence to solve a crime, breeding your own bacteria colony, isolating tomato DNA and cracking the genetic code!
The full colour 48 page manual takes you step by step through each experiment whilst teaching about biological inheritance. Learn about the scientists Mendel, Watson, and Crick, and their great contributions. The kit even includes charts and posters to hang around the home so the fun never stops. Just add a few ingredients from your kitchen for hours of educational fun!
