Biotechnology is a one-week, laboratory based enrichment course for rising 8th through 12th graders. The course will start with a review of DNA structure and genetics. From there, students will explore the major techniques used to study DNA. This includes DNA extraction from plant and animal cells, pipetting, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), gel electrophoresis, and microarrays. The only prerequisite for this class is a desire to learn!
