Add to Cal
  • Host Department: race
  • Date: 01/13/2013
  • Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

  • Location: Museum of Natural History, 1109 Geddes Ave., Ann Arbor, MI 48109

  • Description:

    There is no biological marker for race, so why do we look so different on the outside? Families will learn about the biological reasons behind different skin colors and hair textures and explore other inherited genetic traits, like the ability to taste certain compounds. Families will get to perform a DNA extraction. For children ages 6-11 accompanied by an adult. Call 734-764-0480 to preregister. Sponsored by Toyota USA Foundation.
