Illuminating DNA’s Role in Cellular Structure, Function and Adaptation NGSS Style!

DNA is a household term that has empirically earned a reputation as “the” molecule for identifying individuals and establishing kinship. But how well do students understand the role of its variability on cellular activity? How well can they connect & evidence phenotype and genetic variations? In this session, you will engage in an introductory wet/paper lab investigation combo that utilizes NGSS content and practices and genes that guide glowing protein synthesis to illuminate DNA’s role in building cells, how it influences cellular functions and what potential adaptations look like at this level. Middle and high school lesson adaptations will be presented.
