Late Night Science: Dragon Genetics for Middle School
Students can learn about basic genetics through using Dragons (a fun imaginative example). This one time course will introduce them to the topic of Mendelian Genetics.
There are no upcoming classes.

55 minute class
Learners will be introduced to basic Mendelian Genetics. We will cover dominant and recessive genes, Punnett squares and some special case inheritance types. The class will be a lecture based class with slides and lots of time for questions and interaction. I like to ask the students for input as we go and work lots of examples along the way. Students will get to breed their own dragon and draw its characters. However, this is not meant to be a drawing class. We will only be sketching...
Students will learn basic Mendelian Genetics and how to work out simple genetics problems.
Paper, pencil and colored pencils (crayons or markers would also suffice)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
