DNA Creations
Our Grade 12s are currently learning about DNA, RNA and protein synthesis.

The Grade 12 Life Sciences classes put their knowledge of protein synthesis to the test, by transcribing DNA codes and translating the information on RNA into sequences of amino acids, that led to the creation of protein “beasts” or creatures.  In this practical Life Sciences lesson, our Grade 12s learnt lots, ate lots and had great fun!

Fingerprint Discoveries
This assignment addresses the question: does DNA determine our fingerprint patterns? If so, will related individuals show more matching patterns than unrelated individuals?  This assignment gives learners the opportunity to investigate this question, collect data and draw conclusions from the results that they compile.
