Building the Blocks of Life

Building the Blocks of Life

Last week, several of our Secondary 2 classes went to the Singapore Science Centre to learn about the building blocks of life during a 2-hour DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) workshop. Our students found out their blood types through blood typing and looked into the ancestry of a child.  They also compared different organisms through DNA extraction and learned about the importance of genetic profiling in criminal investigation. The Learning Journey ended with a tour around the exhibits at the Science Centre. Our little scientists enjoyed their lesson outside of classroom as such Learning Journeys make knowledge both intimate and alive!
