The Cell Explorers team from NUI Galway's Biochemistry section visited Fifth Class yesterday. We got to act as scientists, work with laboratory equipment and techniques and understand how to extract DNA from a banana. We also had the chance to build our own DNA double helix. There were fun and informative presentations and the team of demonstrators was on hand to help us in our investigations. We did a quiz at the end to check our understanding and we received certificates of achievement for our cell exploration. Thank You very much to Muriel Grenon, PhD and to her students who have inspired us to be Scientists!
