On January 19, Gr. 7H spent the day at the Michael Smith Labs at UBC. The girls participated in two different workshops.
In the morning, they performed an experience where they isolated their own DNA, and then they had the chance to load and run a DNA gel. This process uses electricity to separate DNA fragments.
In the afternoon, the girls worked on a screenplay, which they performed in front of a camera. The themes addressed in the screenplays were linked to the experiment in both direct and indirect ways.
See the girls in action in these photos taken by Mr. Camp:
