Kids, parents learn about DNA at Explore!

Posted:
PRINCETON, WV (WVVA) -

Combine a banana, dish soap, and rubbing alcohol together, and you get a science project! And quite the project happened today in Princeton. The Explore science center was teaching visitors about DNA extraction. It was a hands-on experiment that visitors could do themselves with only a little guidance. Holly Flanigan explains the purpose of the experiments. "They sat here for 10-15 minutes... didn't really realize it was science... didn't realize they were learning and going through a process, and they had a really good time doing it!" Also today, other children were picking up crystals they had started making this past Thursday.
