Join us for an intense week of summer science designed to introduce students in grades 6 through 8 to a world of microorganisms. We’ll explore just how clean your hands really are after you wash them and then use microscopes to see what some of those “germs” look like. Then we’ll take a closer look at what makes life possible as you isolate some DNA from bacteria and from your very own cells. Then be prepared to use that DNA and everything you learned in a CSI-like investigation, right here at a fully functional research laboratory on the PSU campus in the Boyd Science Center, to solve The Case of Mistaken Identity. Leave all your friends looking puzzled at the evidence when you ask them, “Don’t you see what I see? I know who did it!” Click here to register: https://www.events.unh.edu/RegistrationForm.pm?event_id=17458
