Puxico HOSA Club Strawberry DNA Extraction Workshop 4-20-15

The Puxico Junior High HOSA club members may never look at strawberries the same again!  These students were introduced to the fascinating world of DNA during a one hour workshop on Monday, April 20, 2015. Using a technique similar to the one used by scientists, students extracted DNA from a strawberry and examined it.  They also learned about cell walls and cell membranes.
