Saturday Gene-ius Day on OahuMay 5, 9:00am - 11:30am
Mānoa Campus, St. John Plant Science Building (exact location to be determined)
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.
Cost: $15 per child and $15 per chaperone (mandatory for grades 1-3). Registration deadline: April 27, 2012. Visit the Gene-ius Day website http://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/geneius-day/saturday.html to download the registration form.
