Day one On day one, I loved how we did introductions in the beginning and got to know each other better. Coming into this class was definitely something different. The fruits lab that we did really helped me to understand a lot more about DNA and how it works. Who knew just kitchen supplies could get a DNA out of little things like a strawberry.
Day two I have always been interested in doing computer programming but never had the chance to take it since we don’t have a specific one at our school. And that’s when I took advantage of this opportunity. I had heard about Bio Linux but taking this class taught me how to use it.
Day three On Day three we learned about how different species can still have the same genes as other things. When I found out that humans had the same type of genes as horses, I was in shock. And then I wanted to do more research over it and this is when I found out that corn had the same type of genes as a caterpillar. How gross it that?!
Day four On day four, we learned how useful technology is in the bio world. We did a hands on activity where we had to code a DNA sequence of our choice and make a necklace out of it, this process probably took us hours but with technology it worked in seconds.
Conclusion This whole week as been a great experience for me. And I thank all the teachers here. I have taken many biology classes but I loved how the teachers went in more detail about the topics they talked about. One thing I felt that should be changed is, we should have more hands on activities. That way we have more of an experiment.
