Mondays, 5:00 - 6:30 PM

We'll be diving into some exciting topics in the field of biology. Through hands-on learning, we'll explore how the human brain works and learn all about DNA and the role that iron plays in keeping us healthy. This Biology Science Explorer program has three modules:

1) How Does the Human Brain Work? Students will make clay brains of Insects, fish, reptiles, birds, cats/dogs, and humans and then color 5 major brain structures to visualize how the brain evolved from reptiles to humans. We'll make a giant neuron that fires up chemicals and learn the role of the main chemicals used by neurons to communicate with each other. Finally, we'll make a brain hat and explore why learning from mistakes is actually good for our brain, and can even make us smarter.

2) Fruits DNA Extraction! Students will extract Strawberry DNA and explore hereditary diseases caused by DNA mutations. We'll build a Lego double helix DNA and sequence a monster DNA to determine the genotype and phenotype.

3) All About Iron! Ever wonder what's really in your cereal bowl? Join us as we extract iron from a cereal box and explore its function in keeping us healthy.
