How are genetics and biotechnology applied to modern agriculture? What is their impact on the environment? These inquiry-based activities allow students to investigate the social, ethical and economic consequences of various agricultural innovations, while developing critical-thinking skills.
The activities cover a wide range of topics related to biology, from selective breeding to genetic engineering.
For additional learning opportunities and fun, test your students’ new knowledge by participating in the Genetics and Biotechnology school program at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum.
