Fusion of Art and Science: DNA Barcoding

My students need a microcentrifuge and pyrex bottles to have the opportunity to do genetic labs.

My Students

Our students come from 51 different countries and speak many different languages. Our school focuses on creating a meaningful academic environment for students with diverse backgrounds and academics needs. Students strive to learn while adapting to a new country and language. We meet the academic needs of English Language Learners, students with interrupted education, and students with learning disabilities through collaborative and project-based activities. Project-based learning and portfolio presentations throughout the academic year has allowed our students to demonstrate their learning in various ways and develop skills that gives them the encouragement they need to continue to pursue their goals.

My Project

These lab tools will give my students the opportunity to use equipment that they have not previously used and continue to develop measurement skills needed in science and everyday life. In this project, students will learn and use DNA lab techniques to identify living things.

Through the fusion of Science and Art, students will be encouraged to collaborate and create their own representation of the DNA Barcoding data collected that incorporates their interests and culture.

The opportunity to incorporate art in science, gives each student the opportunity to build reading fluency. Also, integrating art into science gives English Language Learners the ability to apply and demonstrate their science knowledge in creative and innovative forms. Students need MicroCentrifuge and different volume Pyrex bottles.
