DNA Extraction in 4th Class

4th Class were very lucky this week when they each got to learn about and extract the DNA of a banana! 8 scientists from Cell Explorers, a UCD organised initiative, visited the classrooms and turned them into a Science Lab for the day. The children used pipettes, test tubes, ethanol and liquid detergent to extract the DNA using a very specific scientific method aided by the volunteers. A very enjoyable science session was had and a big thanks to Aoife who organised this visit!
