Looking for great activities to engage young scientists at home or in the classroom? We've got detailed directions for a number of fun and educational activities that explore the science of cells and DNA using basic materials. We've also included the protocols for a number of experiments similar to those performed in the Cell Lab. These experiments may require materials such as chemicals and live bacteria. We strongly recommend that you be familiar with all safety procedures regarding the handling of these materials and that you perform these experiments using the proper protective gear, in a controlled environment, and under the supervision of an adult. The Science Museum of Minnesota claims no responsibility for injury or damages that may result from the misuse or mishandling of materials performed during the execution of these experiments.
