Biotech Day 2017 – Exploring the World of DNA | 生物科技日2017 – 探索DNA世界

We offered Biotech Camps for students during summer time in 2010, 2011 and 2016. Over two days, students learnt new concepts and explored the fun of Science and Biotechnology via hands-on experiments.

We are pleased to offer Biotech Day 2017 – Discovering the World of DNA in the coming summer! This is a one-day program for Primary 5-6, and Secondary 1-2 students who are interested in exploring the fun of DNA and genetics.

 

What is offered?

Teaching staff of BML Program will lead all students to explore the fun of DNA through specific topics.

 

DNA & Genetics
  • Students will learn the nature and characteristics of DNA through hands-on activities, including Paper DNA model and DNA Extraction from Bacterial Cells.
Genetic Traits
  • Students will learn about different genetic traits through interactive games.
Genetic Diseases
  • Students will learn about different genetic diseases by making Candy DNA model.
Human Genome Map
