Summerschool Junior

Summerschool

During Summerschool Junior, 180 primary school children visit the University Utrecht campus for a week to learn about diverse topics like veterinary science, geosciences and social sciences. The Mobile DNA-lab ‘Language of a Tumour’ developed a 2 hours programme on DNA for these 8-12 year olds.

The programme consists of three parts:

1. Playing a game that clarifies that we are all unique because of our DNA.
2. DNA isolation from a cheek swap that the children get to do themselves. It shows them what their own DNA looks like and yes, they get to take it home!
3. Building a strand of DNA from candy. The code of the DNA-strand is composed of a (made up) sequence based on their hair colour.

The programme is a continuous blend of playing, discovering, and learning. This (inter)active approach ensures a high learning curve and a lot of fun!
