2020-2021 Steam Team Activity (1)

Date: 12/04/2021

STEAM TEAM ACTIVITY (1) by Kelly Chung 5A (8)

The first meeting of STEAM TEAM was held at the Biology Laboratory on 8th April, 2021. Two alumni, Chloe and Jocelyn, who are studying science-related subjects in the Chinese University of Hong Kong, introduced the concepts of Animal and Plant Cloning and 16 S.4 and S.5 students took the role of tutors.  33 STEAM TEAM members(S.2- S.3 students) learnt more biological concepts and skills about DNA molecules and Plant Cloning. We did several experiments such as DNA extraction from the cells of strawberries and bananas. We also cloned the cauliflower by cutting and replanting its meristematic tissues in the growth medium. At last, we had the opportunity to do Pipetting Practice, which is a technique to measure accurately a very small volume of a solution (such as 20 µl) by micropipette. All of us enjoyed the experiments and were inspired by the new technology and also the biotechnology career pathways.
