Although COVID-19 restrictions have begun to be relaxed/reduced, Cell EXPLORERS will continue to deliver "Fantastic DNA in a Box" online visits for 2022. Please contact your local team to request a box and a visit. We are currently considering the possibility of resuming in-person activities and will anounce it here when we do.
Our remote activities are based on our hands-on science session Fantastic DNA for schools or for Science Festivals, but with new online approaches!

The Fantastic DNA in a Box workshop is a remote DNA extraction session that can be run by teachers in the classroom without the physical presence of demonstrators.
Through the use of pre-packaged materials, video instructions and online support, teachers can set up this session with ease and run the session either alone guided by videos or through a online video call with Cell Explorers Explainers.
For Science Festivals
The Fantastic DNA! at home workshop is a remote online workshop designed so that families at home can engage in some hands-on experiments with enthusiastic scientists!
By using a combination of pre-packaged materials (sent in advance for ticket-holders via post) and ingredients commonly found in kitchens, participants can are guided by trained scientist explainers to extract DNA from a banana. Suitable for those aged 8-12 years old and their parents/guardians.
