Science- Fantastic DNA Project

The girls from 4th, 5th and 6th classes had a very interesting science week. On Wednesday the girls in Ms O Briens class went to UCC where they listened to the Across Africa talk. They found it very interesting.

On Thursday the UCC Cell Explorers team came to the school where they did a workshop and experiments with Ms. O Leary’s and Ms. O Brien’s classes. The Fantastic DNA Project let the children try and extract DNA from bananas. As you can see from the pictures below the children were very interested in the experiment and successfully extracted DNA from the bananas.
