Genetics and DNA Thames and Kosmos
The kids can create their own lab for an in-depth investigation with the Genetics and DNA science gift from Thames & Kosmos where they will learn all about genetics, the branch of biology focused on heredity and variation in organisms, and DNA, the acid that holds the blueprints for life.
This absorbing science kit enables kids to isolate the DNA from a tomato in a test tube, investigate inheritance and learn how traits are passed down from parents to children, learn about dominant and recessive genes and play inheritance games to determine how traits are manifested, learn about the biology of reproduction, the components of cells, and how chromosomes are combined and copied.
Assemble a model to see the elegant double-stranded helical structure of DNA then crack the genetic code and find out how the different parts fit. Analyze DNA evidence to identify suspects and solve a crime. Learn about the influential scientists in the field and breed a bacteria colony to experiment with genetic engineering.
The full-colour, 48-page manual that comes with this Thames and Kosmos Kit guides the experiments and imparts a huge amount of knowledge in an engaging way.
A great gift for all children interested in science and Thames & Kosmos recommended for children 10 years old and upwards.
