When you strap on the VR headset, get ready to head underwater because this unit is in our underwater research lab. If you’re going to learn about genetics, why not do it in the underwater lab?
But just because you’re underwater, it doesn’t mean you cannot take a side trip to an ancient library that holds the secrets to your genetics and chromosomes. Each of the ancient manuscripts will tell you what each of your 23 chromosomes does.
Enter the candle lit room, turn on the radio and open the comic to learn about how Mendel discovered genetic traits.
Take a field trip to a vineyard where we learn about the genetic traits of grapes, of all things. And Wendy the Science Teacher shows us the mysteries hiding within our chromosomes when we take a genetic test.
Then witness human cells and see the almost magical science of cells come to life right in front of your eyes.
Oh, for teachers, the entire unit is based on Next Gen Science Standards.
