ECHO Family-Scientist Lab: Reproductive System
Wednesday, August 15, 2012
Start: 1:00 pm
Sexual reproduction has allowed organisms to create incredible physical diversity across the world and is responsible for giving us the DNA that helps shape who we are. In this lab we will review the basic physical processes of human reproduction, examine what is happening on a cellular and genetic level, and then extract some of our own DNA. To make your reservation for a Family-Scientist Lab call 877-324-6386, ext. 100.
ECHO is excited to offer these ECHO Family-Scientist Labs this summer. Each one hour lab will include a short lecture and hands-on activity that focuses on a specific body system highlighted in the Our Body: The Universe Within exhibit. After lab time there will be short guided walk-through of that system in the exhibit. The six themed labs are open to people who have purchased tickets to Our Body:The Universe Within for that day. However, space is limited to 25 participants (sign-up is on a first come, first served basis). The intended audience is 10 and up, though all ages are welcome. We will be working in a real laboratory so we ask that any children attending be accompanied by at least one care-giver.
