Product Description
Students can extract real DNA from strawberries in this experiment. The steps are quite simple and surprisingly you will likely have all of the materials at home or school!

I did this lab with college students in my BIO 101 lab, and also with children ages 4 to 14 who visited my children's museum on field trips. Students of all ages absolutely loved being real scientists!

The download includes a complete lesson plan with all instructions needed for the lab, as well as a script to help the teacher facilitate discussion. There are some photos to help guide you through the experiment. Also, if you do not have access to a centrifuge I have recommended one that can be purchased for less than $20, and have included instructions for completing the activity without a centrifuge.

Enjoy! I LOVE this activity!
