Event Details

Fantastic DNA ! is a science workshop based on the topic of DNA, the building block of life. Maya Frost and her team of Cell Explorers will show the children how to extract DNA from a banana and there’s also a science-based paper finger game to play. Children take home the DNA they have prepared, a black and white DIY DNA pro tocol and their paper finger game.

This workshop gives children the opportunity to meet a scientist and to act like scientists themselves. The children through fun activities are also introduced to important biological concepts such as cells being the basic unit of life and DNA as the instruction book for the cell. This workshop is suitable for children aged 7+. A banana will never look the same to you again !!
