It's in the Genes: Mini Med FLEX Camp
In this 6-week flex class, students will explore human genetics from the big picture (DNA, genome) to specific topics (ear wax, blood type). We will cover mitosis/meiosis, Punnett Squares and how to draw a pedigree (family tree). #academic
US Grade 5 - 8
**Since these are flex classes and people take vacations and holiday breaks at different times, just let me know if you need to complete the flex class on a different schedule and I'll add extra weeks. I'll still post new lessons each week but will know that your learner will be needing extra time.** This 6-week flex class provides a deeper dive into genetics than I am able to do in my live classes, specifically for older students or those with a particular interest in genetics, biology, or...
Students will gain a basic understanding of human genetics. More importantly, students will leave the class with an appreciation of the complexity and potential of the science of genetics to help people.
As a family physician with a decade in private practice, I love teaching young people about how their bodies work. I believe that people who understand their bodies will take better care of them.
Homework Offered* Learners will complete a model, drawing, or written notes during each class * Learners will post a photo of their model, drawing, or written notes in the classroom * Learners will be asked to answer a prompt before and after the recorded lesson every week, which may be a getting-to-know-you question or related to the material * Learners are encouraged to comment on classmates' work as well
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Please read through the class description for a more detailed explanation. All learners will need paper and a writing implement for drawing a pedigree. If your learner will be taking notes or drawing, they will need the appropriate supplies for that. If your learner will be creating the same models as I use, they will need pipe cleaners (in several colors, just one small bag will be enough), one block of polymer clay, a few toothpicks, alphabet beads, pony beads in a few colors (one small bag will be enough), construction paper (a sheet each of red, yellow, white, and another color). If your learner has another idea for creating models, they'll need whatever supplies they will be using.
Nothing in this class will be or is intended to be medical advice. This is merely educational in nature and will be a surface-level overview. Your student will not be coming out of this class knowing anything about how to diagnose or treat these conditions and we will not be discussing any personal medical questions/needs. Students should come with general questions about the topic.
