Learn How Microbes are Engineered for Biofuels and Biochemicals Production

Zone D: Tempe campus

This activity will let participants know about different microbes used in industries and how they are modified in the laboratory for producing biofuels and biochemicals. There will be hands-on activities for the kids to create DNA candies and DNA necklace. Learn how researchers work with and handle DNA in the laboratory. Microbes modified to fluorescence or display vibrant colors will also be displayed in bioreactors.
