As part of IEA’s goal to offer challenging academic enrichment in innovative new ways, here is the first installment in a series of Virtual Learning Labs! This video will explain this new offering and dive into the basics of Mendelian Genetics, including dominant and recessive alleles, genotypes and phenotypes and Mendel’s pea plant experiments. It will end with an activity that will allow students to “build a creature” based on the results of a coin toss determining which alleles it inherits.
Presented by Nicole Endacott, IEA Program Coordinator
You will need blank paper, a writing utensil, colored pencils or markers, and a coin or dice.
