This week in Year 5 and 6 we used our scientific skills to follow instructions and then evaluate the investigation. We extracted DNA from strawberries! First, we mashed the strawberries and then mixed it with water, washing-up liquid and salt. Next, we filtered the concoction until only liquid remained. Finally, we carefully added ice-cold surgical spirits and white threads of strawberry DNA appeared! It was such an exciting experiment. Next week we will discuss how to improve the instructions.
