Students at Duchess Park had the chance to learn all about genetics, adaptations, and biology in a special workshop Monday.
It’s all part of Genome BC’s Geneskool activities introducing students to fun and hands on learning techniques. Students were put into groups for the workshop and found out how animals adapt to different environments.
Workshop Coordinator, Ashley Port says Genome BC conducts about 100 workshops across the province during the academic year to encourage students that science really can be a lot of fun. “We’ll send out students of science, either undergrads or graduates students who enjoy science and practicing it and learning about science,” she said. “Science and reality is not just reading from a book and memorizing, it’s interactive, it’s the doing, and thinking, so that’s what we try to do with these activities.”
Workshops continue for students tomorrow at Duchess Park Secondary, College Heights Secondary, and Westside Academy.
