DNA Extractions in Year 6

We were very fortunate this week to have visitors from a DNA research company in Cambridge who came to investigate DNA with our Year 6 pupils.

Through a scientific process the children each extracted DNA from strawberries.
Using a range of chemicals, the children crushed their strawberries, filtered them and extracted vast quantities of DNA.

Please enjoy the photos.
