Dive into the world of DNA! The central concepts of molecular biology become child's play with this set of favorite experiments in the ScienceWiz DNA kit. Extract DNA from a fruit, probe and spool real DNA, build a double helix, solve a chromosome puzzle, ask is it a boy or a girl?, do gene analysis, extract your own DNA and make forgery proof DNA ink - all in with one kit. WOW!
Step-by-step, highly visual instructions lead a child successfully through each of the 18 activities. The full color illustrations present central scientific concepts which allow children to discover the "why" as well as the "how" of these great projects. Bring the fun and learning further by utilizing the animations that compliment the book on the ScienceWiz website to deepen and extend comprehension.
The award winning ScienceWiz line got its start in 1995 when we released our first title ScienceWiz Electricity. Our line of science kits stemmed from Dr. Penny Norman's volunteer work teaching science in her children's elementary schools and her ScienceWiz after school and summer programs. With initial development supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Franklin Foundation, each of our kits is created with the goal of teaching fundamental scientific concepts to children through hands-on play. From our offices in El Sobrante, CA we work hard towards our goal of providing children a basic foundation in science. Each new title we release is focused on a distinct topic. With so many disciplines in science, our work may never be finished!
