Yr11 Triple Science – @Bristol DNA Detectives & Ice Skating

29 students became forensic scientists to compare DNA samples from a crime scene with those from a group of suspects.  Using gel electrophoresis to separate DNA digested with restriction enzymes, every group had an excellent result in seeing distinctive genetic ‘fingerprints’ to distinguish between the samples and so identify the true suspect.

Then it was out into Millennium Square for some ice skating under the planetarium.  A lot was learned about resultant forces, momentum as well as the issues of a low friction environment.  Thanks to all students and staff for making this an event that is sure to become a popular feature of our Triple Science course.IMG_20161209_151327
