Event Information

Have you ever wondered what "the essence of life" - DNA - would look like if you held it in the palm of your hand? In the course of this 15-minute program, we will crush up fresh strawberries and extract their DNA in order to see it up close and personal - without the aid of a microscope. During the process, discover why some scientists call DNA the most extraordinary molecule on earth.
