Saturday Gene-ius Day on Kaua'i-Section A

May 19, 9:00am - 11:30am
Kauaʻi Campus, Kauai Community College, (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 Kauai, 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.
