In this project-packed curriculum, students get a taste of a wide range of biotechnological concepts, processes, and uses. They set up and complete a hydroponics experiment and grapple with tough bioethics case studies. Students learn about basic genetics and how DNA works. They learn to analyze biochemical compounds in materials using chromatography and to use enzymes to cause biological reactions. In addition, they are asked to observe the fermentation process and explore common biological pharmaceutical products. Students also complete blood typing experiments. Plus, with the Biotech and Genetics curriculm, students receive valuable practice with a number of biotechnology tools, including a microscope.
