description

The Blueprint of Life involves looking at how organisms evolve over time, how good (and bad) traits are passed on from generation to generation, and how cloning and artificially-modified organisms are crossing the line between science-fiction and reality. Prepared by Cindy Huynh and Sarah Lawman, this module will cover a wide range of topics, including evolution, Gregor Mendel's experiments with garden peas, chromosomes, DNA, and genetic engineering. Students will gain a deeper understanding on the complexities of evolution, how gene inheritance works, how chromosomes and DNA fits into all of this, and how genetic engineering is slowly becoming a bigger topic of discussion.
