Part 3 is a course that goes further into Genetics than Parts 1 and 2. It is advised to take those two prior to this Part 3 class. Although it isn't mandatory. If your child is familiar with cell structure, mitosis and meiosis then this class is next in line. *Please note that I prefer students to keep their video open while in my lab classroom and keep chatroom conversation to a minimum. After listening to a short lecture and video, students will learn by recreating Parts of RNA, viruses,...
They will learn about RNA, viruses, bacteria, and CRISPR through modeling with craft materials.
I've taught Genetics for several years in my Biology class and Forensics class. I would enjoy teaching your child about why it's important to learn about genetics.
Students may have some reference material to read or watch.
Day 1 How is genetic engineering helping to stop diseases. How is CRISPR being used to make genetically specific medication for cancer patients? Let’s learn about the different types of bacteria. (Students need assorted color pipe cleaners.) Day 2 Let’s build a T-phage Virus And learn its structure. (Students will need paper, bubble straw, pipe cleaners, scotch tape, markers, and cardboard.) Day 3 Let’s build an RNA chain and learn how it’s used in Translation. (Students can use gummy bears, marshmallows, or gumdrops, and a box of toothpicks) Day 4 How does CRISPR help create designer babies? Let’s create a designer Potato Head Baby. (Students will need beads of any color, pipe cleaners of any color, and makers. You can bring other craft materials too if you like.
Oral evaluation will determine the students comprehension of the material.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Topics may be disturbing for some students who are unaware of how scientists are using Genetics. I may speak about designer babies and how scientists may preselect humans for extending their lives. This may involve some reproductive references that will mention the words sperm and egg. I do my best to make it age-appropriate. If I can't answer directly, I will let them know to ask their parents.
