Default High School Teachers Get a Lesson in Identifying Genetically Modified Foods

High School Teachers Get a Lesson in Identifying Genetically Modified Foods
Sheila Foran
University of Connecticut
Quote:
A group of Connecticut high school teachers learned recently from UConn scientists how to use molecular genetics and DNA analysis to identify genetically modified foods, a tool they hope will help engage their students in the study of science.
Quote:
During the workshop, teachers were shown how to determine whether food contains genetically modified plant products.
Quote:
You are what you eat, said Berkowitz, and it’s particularly important for today’s consumers to know what is in the food they purchase. “When teachers take this exercise back to their classrooms, their students will be able to see for themselves how the study of molecular biology has practical applications.
