B.C.’s minister of advanced education, Naomi Yamamoto, dropped by the popular Geneskool camp at Capilano University on August 17, and watched as student investigators checked out fingerprints in the lab.
Secondary school students are once again enjoying summer sleuthing activities in Genome BC’s popular Geneskool at Capilano University. This unique week-long summer camp is a travelling outreach program that introduces high school students to the fascinating world of molecular biology and genomics in a fun and interactive way.
Using the tools of the trade of the popular CSI television series, the workshops allow students to become crime scene technicians, using real lab equipment to solve a murder mystery.
Designed to complement the high school biology curriculum, Genome BC Geneskool labs deliver a hands-on learning experience in a small class setting. The students spend their days extracting DNA, dusting for fingerprints and analyzing simulated blood splatters – all in the name of solving the crime.
