Biotech Day

We offered two-day Biotech Day Programs for Primary 5-6, and Secondary 1-2 students during summer time in the past few years. They were highly successful programs with very good responses and feedback from the participants. Over two days, students learnt the concepts of DNA Science and Microbiology, and explored the fun of Science and Biotechnology via hands-on experiments. This is a two-day program for students who are interested in exploring the fun of biotechnology through specific topics. These topics will consist of fun and interactive hands-on activities, workshops, and experiments. 

Science for Fun
  • Students will find creative solutions to scientific problems.
Microbiology Exploration
  • Students will be introduced to a microscopic world and explore the microbial world around us via hands-on experiments.
  • Students will learn about the methods of disinfection via Colour-To-Learn activities, and study the effects of household chemicals/ antibiotics on bacterial growth.
DNA Science
  • Students will learn the nature of DNA through hands-on activities, including Paper and Candy DNA Models, DNA Extraction from Bacterial Cells, Fun Exploration on Human Genome Map.
