Science 360: Genetic Engineering
Since the early 1970s genetic engineering has become more and more a part of our lives. One of the earliest and most useful applications of this technology was genetically modified bacteria that could produce life-saving insulin for people with diabetes.
|Educator Resource Kit|
With animations, hands-on activities, and a live facilitator, audience members will learn about the techniques used to make these life-saving bugs possible, along with other ways that we encounter genetic engineering each day. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
Science 360: Genetic Engineering is also available for school groups. This program
correlates with the NC science content standards for grades 6-8 and high school biology.
Please call (919) 962-1236 to schedule a group visit.
