Chemistry + Biology Course - EXPLO

Light Up the Lab

Chemistry + Biology

Experiment with different biological, chemical, and physical reactions as we explore out-of-the-box solutions to solve scientific riddles and puzzles.

We’re looking for scientist magicians who can change the color of a flower and pop a balloon of water without spilling. a. drop. We’re looking for lab wizards who can extract DNA from their lunch, build a larger-than-life animal cell and unravel the mystery of “hot ice.” In our lab, you’ll experiment with osmosis and cell structure (to find out where color lives) and explore the structure of molecules (which we’ll help you figure out). Experiment with different biological, chemical, and physical reactions as we explore out-of-the-box solutions to solve scientific riddles and puzzles.

We learned about DNA and that there are millions of cells in your body and that genes are in all of your cells. In your genes, it'll be able to say when you're a certain age and maybe when you'll stop growing. It can even say how tall you're going to be.
