zipTrips - It's a Gene Thing (Grade 8 program)

February 16 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM -

 

Why do humans and animals look and act the way they do? It's all about DNA! In this zipTrip, learn how Purdue scientists are studying the building blocks of life. This visit starts with a look at how researching genetic combinations in mice teaches us more about human life. And something fishy is happening! A fish geneticist takes us to Alaska, an aquaculture farm, and LIVE to her lab as she tries to find out why certain fish travel the globe. Then, get ready to use your scientific inquiry skills to help Purdue wildlife geneticists track tiger salamanders to find out more about the heredity of this species.

Program includes:

  • Live show (45 minutes)
  • Supporting classroom materials
    • -teacher's guide
    • -short videos featuring Purdue scientists discussing scientific inquiry and their work
