Wooden microscope images
The first assignment for our Junior Researchers was to assemble a wooden microscope and take images of different objects around the house. Here are some examples. Keep sending us more!
Maddie sent us the great images of the mouse jaw bones from the owl pellet experiment, an image of a rock and a closeup of a five dollar bill. Fantastic work!
DNA extraction from strawberries
The third assignment for our Junior Researchers was to extract DNA from strawberries. The strawberries were smashed up with detergent, filtered through paper and the DNA was extracted from the liquid using cold ethyl alcohol. Look how much we got on the stick!
