Spring SAVY 2018, Day 4- Modified Organisms (3rd/4th)
Hello Parents and Students!
With all this bad weather what better place to be except inside the classroom?!
Today we went over our results from the corn experiment. Everyone recorded the data collected from the class and determined….either they ate it or they didn’t (pretty much animals love food). We did have some outliers where the GMO corn was preferred over the nonGMO corn and vice versa.
Also we continued our talk on GMOs and how they are made through some cool pictures of genetically modified animals, some of which that glowed green! We also completed our Bio-Engineering Virtual Lab where each student got to modify a bacterial cell and insert a red gene from coral which we will grow LIVE next week!
If you were unable to make it today or want to see that bio-lab again, this is the website.
By the way… we got to see our clean petri plates today from everything that we swabbed inside the classroom from last week (hands, vents, door handles, etc.)…pretty cool, but in no way would i ever take the lid off!
