Saturday Gene-ius Day, May 19

The Biotechnology Outreach Program of the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) is offering a special Saturday-version of its popular Gene-ius Day workshop to children on Kauai, grades 1 through 6.

The workshop offers fun hands-on activities for children (and accompanying parents) to learn about DNA, genetics, molecular structure and the function of genes and other biological functions. Students will extract DNA from fruit, make a DNA model, and use DNA to solve an “out of this world” crime. Reservations are required.

Date: Saturday, May 19, 2012
Time: 9:00 am - 11:30 am
Location: Kauai Community College (exact location to be determined)
Cost: $20 per child and $20 per chaperone (mandatory for grades 1-3)
Registration deadline: May 11, 2012.
Registration forms: Visit the Gene-ius Day website http://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/geneius-day/saturday.html to download the registration forms.
