The Biotechnology Outreach Program of the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) is offering a special Saturday-version of its popular Gene-ius Day workshop to children on Oahu, grades 1 through 6. The workshop offers fun hands-on activities for children (and accompanying parents) to learn about DNA, genetics, molecular structure and the function of genes and other biological functions. Students will extract DNA from fruit, make a DNA model, and use DNA to solve an “out of this world” crime. Reservations are required.

Ticket Information
Cost: $15 per child and $15 per chaperone (mandatory for grades 1-3). Registration deadline: April 27, 2012. Visit the Gene-ius Day website to download the registration form.
