Teens & Tech

April 13 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Teens and Tech is an after hours event at McWane Science Center for students 6th-12th grade. Each Teens and Tech night focuses on a single topic that is related to science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics.

Exploring the Genome

Join us for an evening of exploring the field of genetics! We will learn about the genetics and effects of Huntington’s Disease through a sheep brain dissection. Each participant will collect a sample of their own DNA and create a DNA necklace.
During this event, we will also explore the “Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code” exhibit (made possible by sponsorship by UAB Medicine)
