Welcome all biotech nerds to this fun and informative class where you will be participating in hands-on biotech lab and bio-informatics activities. FaceTime with scientists, meet and interact with biotech professionals and get an inside view of a biotech company! Young scientists begin the week by extracting DNA from a variety of organisms and end the week with a little genetic engineering. Students will investigate how information coded in DNA controls physical traits and how changes in DNA may cause the symptoms of some genetic disorders. Throughout the camp, students use the equipment found in most science research labs and gain hands-on experience in micropipetting and centrifuging.
